After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

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.
