The Neighbors

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.

The neighbors in the Ivy Pl / Cornelison Ave neighborhood in Jersey City are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 63.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 34.5% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 77.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Ivy Pl / Cornelison Ave neighborhood, 35.8% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 35.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (16.9%), and 11.9% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents, our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior – comes from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.

In the Ivy Pl / Cornelison Ave neighborhood in Jersey City, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (24.0%). There are also a number of people of Dominican ancestry (10.1%), and residents who report Arab roots (10.0%), and some of the residents are also of Italian ancestry (7.1%), along with some South American ancestry residents (6.7%), among others. In addition, 45.5% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Ivy Pl / Cornelison Ave neighborhood is English, spoken by 37.9% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese and Chinese.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Ivy Pl / Cornelison Ave neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (33.4% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.
