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.

to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.
