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 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.

living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which
is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 78.4%

The Neighbors: Occupations

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents,
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.

Getting to Work
How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your
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
means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically
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.

between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (46.1% of working
