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 creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,

The Neighbors: Income
How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low
income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a
neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children,

the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty,
which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals
both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods

unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households
