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 Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood in Bronx are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 95.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 46.0% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 88.0% 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 Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood, 43.2% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is manufacturing and laborer occupations, with 21.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (18.1%), and 17.3% 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 Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood in Bronx, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Puerto Rican (43.3%). There are also a number of people of Dominican ancestry (13.4%), and residents who report Asian roots (4.9%), and some of the residents are also of Mexican ancestry (4.3%), along with some Sub-Saharan African ancestry residents (2.2%), among others. In addition, 23.6% 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 Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 50.6% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English and Vietnamese.

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 Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (31.5% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

Here most residents (36.9%) ride the bus to get to work. In addition, quite a number also take the train to get to work (25.2%) and 18.0% of residents also drive alone in a private automobile for their daily commute. The bus provides a valuable service in the Castle Hill Ave / Homer Ave neighborhood of Bronx by getting a lot of residents to and from work daily, reducing the costs of commuting and reducing some congestion on the roads as well.
