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. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Hudson Heights neighborhood in North Bergen are middle-income, making it a moderate income 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

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 Hudson Heights neighborhood in North Bergen, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as South American (30.5%). There are also a number of people of Cuban ancestry (10.8%), and residents who report Puerto Rican roots (8.6%), and some of the residents are also of Dominican ancestry (8.4%), along with some Italian ancestry residents (6.2%), among others.

Getting to Work
