Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

Even different neighborhoods in the same city can have drastically different cultures.
