I received this posting from UpWorthy with link to rich blocks- poor blocks it a combine of Google maps and the latest census.

Type in Charlotte and zoom in and you can see what the average income for the area.
You can zoom right to the street and see if an area is good.

I like how this helps give idea of what the poorer areas are. I remember people say dont move to Sharon Road West and I was thinking that obsurb as I lived on that road near the Quail Hollow side and it totally different than opposite side by Sharon Lakes Rd.

Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed

Here the link of the original article of some other cities and Charlotte is doing well in comparison with a lot less red.

I look at some of areas and you can see gentrification. Noda would be in red area 15-20 years ago. Wesley Heights is another one the household income seems to have increase.
Lists good areas in east Charlotte too.

I dont know if any of you check out the new home page for city-data.com but it has almost the same map with different colors and more precise on income when you click on a quadrant.
It also gives a break down on demographics.
Just go to top left of this page and click city-data.com

Most cities have some concentrations of poverty, but Cary doesn't have anything less than a "yellow" zone.
