Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

The Neighbors: Income
There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a
neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the
federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with
a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
