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 Northern Blvd / 162nd St neighborhood in Queens are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 68.7% of U.S. neighborhoods. In addition, 10.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 59.2% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Northern Blvd / 162nd St neighborhood, 42.9% 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 executive, management, and professional occupations, with 32.4% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (12.6%), and 12.1% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

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 Northern Blvd / 162nd St neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 31.8% of households. Other important languages spoken here include Korean, English, Chinese and Italian.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Northern Blvd / 162nd St neighborhood in Queens, NY, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as Asian (44.3%). There are also a number of people of Italian ancestry (5.3%), and residents who report South American roots (5.3%), and some of the residents are also of Greek ancestry (4.8%), along with some Dominican ancestry residents (2.4%), among others. In addition, 62.6% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Northern Blvd / 162nd St neighborhood spend between 45 minutes and one hour commuting one-way to work (36.6% of working residents), longer and tougher than most commutes in America.

In addition, quite a number also ride the bus to get to work (27.9%) and 21.8% of residents also take the train for their daily commute.
