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.

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