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.

NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.

four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
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.

line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 95.1%

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

the shear diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits
your lifestyle and aspirations.

(25.5%), and 20.2% in executive, management, and professional 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.
