When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
