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.

NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 76.8% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 45.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 89.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.The Neighbors: Occupations

Other residents here are employed in executive, management, and professional occupations (20.5%), and 17.2% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

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. In the Garden City neighborhood in Myrtle Beach, SC, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as German (17.9%). There are also a number of people of Irish ancestry (13.1%) , and residents who report English roots (6.7%) , and some of the residents are also of Scots-Irish ancestry (3.7%) , along with some Polish ancestry residents (3.7%), among others.The Neighbors: Languages

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. The greatest number of commuters in Garden City neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (37.5% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
