in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 1.2% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the

well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.

Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, think about the people you know personally. How many of them would
purchase box seats to opening night at the symphony? How many of them
regularly attend gallery openings, or are the first to reserve tickets
to opening night at the ballet? If they're like most of us, they don't
do any of these things. But if you're among an exclusive crowd of wealthy
and refined patrons of the arts, then you'll feel right at home in
the Guinea Rd / Twinbrook Rd neighborhood: a neighborhood in which more
"urban sophisticates" live than 96.7% of neighborhoods
across the U.S. Here, your neighbors are defined as having urbane
tastes in literature, music, live theatre and the arts. They are wealthy,
educated, travel in style, and live a big city lifestyle whether or
not they live in or near a big city.
