What Is Your Neighborhood's Median Income?

'Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks' Map lets you see the median income for your neighborhood in Baldwin-Whitehall and surrounding communities.

An interactive map at the Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks website offers a glimpse at median household incomes, by neighborhoods, in the Baldwin-Whitehall area—or anywhere in the country.

Take, for instance, the central Baldwin Borough area below Whitehall and Brentwood boroughs and east of Route 51. The Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks website shows that area's median household income to be $64,071 per year.

The neighborhood just south of that, in the Brownsville Road/Horning area, shows a much-lower median household income of $34,868.

Most of north Baldwin has a median income of $46,563, but some parts of north Baldwin are doing much better than that ($61,636).

The median household income in most of Whitehall—between $46,000 and $47,000—is lower than that of a large part of south Baldwin ($52,083), while all of Baldwin Township is basically the same ($63,500).

Did this article stike a nerve? lower income in classy Whitehall?!?
Margaret French February 15, 2013 at 02:09 PM
You don't need money to be classy. From Merriam Webster online dictionary: Definition of CLASSY : having or showing class: as a : elegant, stylish <a classy clientele> b : having or reflecting high standards of personal behavior <a classy guy> <a classy gesture> c : admirably skillful and graceful <a classy outfielder> — class·i·ness noun
jwill February 15, 2013 at 02:42 PM
That leaves cc out of classy then.
cc February 16, 2013 at 02:25 PM
jwill, then it leaves you queen of the welfare line. Lets meet and see your membership card to South Hills Country Club, not many members live in Baldwin, but do live in Whitehall.
cc February 16, 2013 at 02:27 PM
no jwill it didn't strike a nerve at all. Look at the homes in Whitehall and compare them to Baldwin homes.
Margaret French February 16, 2013 at 04:01 PM
Make sure you look at the other map too. If you want to rent in Whitehall it is higher. I wonder why... maybe because it is classier???
jwill February 16, 2013 at 05:33 PM
Well cc since you think I am queen of welfare, why would a classy lady like you want to meet someone like me? You must be so unhappy in your life you need to put people down all the time. I actually feel sorry for you.
NE12Ukid February 17, 2013 at 02:28 AM
I do, every week, with the interesting homes for sale listed here, and I see homes of equal value but with Whitehall taxes being way higher. Of course when I mentioned this that's when you claimed Whitehall was so much more "classy". Which, of course, is now a big joke here. No offense to other nice people in Whitehall, I know quite a few, and that you are not at all like cc. Baldwin neighbor, Ned.

Braggin about a club membership does not make class, cc.
NE12Ukid February 17, 2013 at 02:30 AM
or because the taxes are higher.
cc February 17, 2013 at 03:48 AM
no jwill it is I who feels sorry for you.
jwill February 17, 2013 at 05:00 PM
Wow you feeling sorry for me makes me feel so honored..... NOT. I'm not the negative Nelly here who is so unhappy with everything it's you. You don't need to feel sorry for me , I have a good life, unlike you. Good bye
cc February 17, 2013 at 07:10 PM
jwill, I do feel sorry for you coming out from under your rock once a month. I for one have a great life here. Only problem I have is dealing with losers like you and ne12ukid
