Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to

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.

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves,
Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily
from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods
home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more
unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households
– and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live
