neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: People

the toughest job in the book. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals
that the McLeod Regional Medical Center School of Medical / E Palmetto St neighborhood has more single mother
households than 99.1% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

crime, and other societal problems.
