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.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

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