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.

Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden.
