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.

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
