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 Broadway / 57th St neighborhood in West New York are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 72.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 32.7% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 75.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.

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. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Broadway / 57th St neighborhood, 46.0% of the working population is employed in manufacturing and laborer 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 29.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (14.1%), and 10.5% in executive, management, and professional 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 Broadway / 57th St neighborhood in West New York, NJ, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Dominican (18.6%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (16.7%), and residents who report South American roots (16.0%), and some of the residents are also of Cuban ancestry (10.4%), along with some Puerto Rican ancestry residents (3.3%), among others. In addition, 60.0% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Broadway / 57th St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 89.1% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Arabic.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Broadway / 57th St neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (31.5% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (28.4%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (26.1%) and 19.9% of residents also hop out the door and walk to work for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
