You may know how walkable your neighborhood is, but have you ever wondered what the average income is? Or how many people are married? The average age?

Well there's a site you can check out called ZIPskinny, which uses census data from 2000 to give you detailed information about the neighborhood you live in. For example, I live in Thai Town, which falls under the 90027 zip code. In my area, the average median household income is $31,820, whereas 90210, or the zip code for Beverly Hills, is $112, 572. it can also show you the racial diversity, educational achievement, occupations and many more. A pretty interesting tool to get an idea of where you live.
