The Neighbors

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.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

The greatest number of commuters in Silverbrook / Colonial Heights neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (46.3% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.
