As the title states, within the city you live in or by, what is the best neighborhood that you would suggest or identify with each of those categories? It doesn't have to necessarily be uniform to what the general public may think in your area, but what you think would be the best choice. You can post a website, streetview and/or another form of information for each category.

For instance, to start it off, this is what I would suggest:

1. Home Downtown Committee of Syracuse

2. Google Maps Street View

3. Google Maps Street View

Eastwood seems middle-class and diverse to me.

To a degree, but the East Side is more so on both accounts due to the proximity to the universities/colleges and hospitals. Actually, both of the last 2 neighborhoods are on the East Side.

Any other cities?

I think this would be another example where you would find all 3: The Elmwood Village Association


https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9222...7i13312!8i6656


This portion of this street would/could fit: HertelAvenue.com - Hertel Avenue Buffalo NY - Stores, Restaurants, Night Clubs, Services, Business

Pittsburgh - like many cities the middle class is being pushed out to the burbs. We basically have rich and poor neighborhoods. Not a whole lot of in-between left.

Urban professionals (wealthy millennials), Lawrenceville is our version of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

I'd block you, but you say so many misleading things that I feel need to be corrected to the wider public.

While Pittsburgh always has had more wealth in the city than is typical for a rust belt metro, there's not a single neighborhood where the median household income is above $100,000 (Squirrel Hill North and Point Breeze come closest). Therefore I don't think it's really fair to say we have wealthy neighborhoods. We have poor neighborhoods and a lot of middle class ones. The wealthiest census block groups in Central Lawrenceville still have a median household income of around $51,000, FWIW.

Regardless, as to the OP. Urban professionals would be Shadyside. Urban middle-class families would be Squirrel Hill. Urban middle class with diversity is harder. Stanton Heights is a racially integrated, solidly middle class neighborhood in the city, but it's mostly postwar suburbia in terms of built form. Highland Park is pretty racially mixed, but most of the black population is poor. I guess I'd go with Point Breeze North, which is around 50/50 black and white, and has a notable black middle class in places.

Here in Indianapolis, there are plenty of townships on the periphery of the city, which are easily affordable by most couples, relatively safe, and technically within the city limits, but I wouldn't consider them urban.

I know several couples in their 30s, some with kids, living in neighborhoods like Broad Ripple and Fountain Square.

In this case, urban was initially meant for anything within city limits. If it fits in terms of the built environment though, even better.

You are the one who admitted to cheerleading in order to convince people to move to Pittsburgh, whether or not it is the truth. Go back and read what you said on the Pittsburgh Pessimism thread.

Census figures back up my posts.
