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

This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

The Neighbors: Income
There are two complimentary 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.

is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 53.9%

The Neighbors: Occupations
A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel

your lifestyle and aspirations.

(19.7%), and 16.9% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.
The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is the shared learned behavior of peoples. Undeniably, different ethnicities
and ancestries have different cultural traditions, and as a result, neighborhoods
with concentrations of residents of one or another ethnicities or ancestries
will express those cultures. It is what makes the North End in Boston so fun
to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.

Getting to Work

day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially
with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and

located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set
up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike.
