I'm gonna put up a list of neighbourhood names I made up, and I wanna see what cities y'all think they would fit in, and how the neighbourhood would be (vibe, demographics, income etc.) These are all made up names, they may share names with real places but that would just be a coincidence. Also, don't pick cities that actually do have neighbourhoods with that name..

Wellport
Golden Ridge
Harbour Cape
Queenston
Westwood
Breezy Pointe
Sunset View
Oak Plain
Mint Ridge
Ocean Park
Southwest Ward
East Shore
Fortuna Springs
Shady Grove
Spring Haven
Temple Square
Plumwood
Marshy Oaks
Carmelita
Bloomingdale
Walnut Park

My thoughts below:

Wellport - Biloxi, MS: gentrifying warehouse district on the Gulf Coast, with a massive influx of them hipsters.

Golden Ridge - Washington, DC: wealthy residential area with large houses, where politicians' families live.

Harbour Cape - Boston: former municipal dry docks, that recently became a yuppie nightlife district.

Queenston - Providence, RI: old-money wealthy neighborhood with surprisingly understated homes.

Westwood - St. Paul, MN: a commercial area that's kind of generic, but quite safe and pleasant to visit.

Breezy Pointe - Flagstaff, AZ: allegedly a serene nature escape, but in practice, a bland housing subdivision.

Sunset View - Los Angeles: former theater district that became a glitzy condominium row on Sunset Blvd.

Oak Plain - Saint Louis, MO: upper-class residential area with large houses but down-to-earth people.

Mint Ridge - Charlotte, NC: nondescript middle-class housing subdivision with an overly strict HOA.

Ocean Park - Tallahassee, FL: beachy, working-class residential area that, for some reason, never gentrified.

Southwest Ward - San Francisco: gritty but relatively safe neighborhood with small houses.

East Shore - Atlantic City, NJ: a historic middle-class mixed-use area that became overran with corporate chains.

Fortuna Springs - Los Angeles: snooty new-money gated community near the eastern city limits.

Shady Grove - Atlanta: historic residential area with wide boulevards and plantation-style houses.

Spring Haven - Hartford, CT: residential area with luxury condominiums, where Masters and Ph.D. students live.

Temple Square - Philadelphia: formerly a Jewish enclave of walk-ups and small shops, but now a decaying neighborhood.

Plumwood - Memphis: a run-down, high-crime neighborhood, nicknamed "The Plummet" by criminal-minded residents.

Marshy Oaks - New Orleans: previously a wetland, now a newly build subdivision with nondescript tract homes.

Carmelita - San Diego: working-class neighborhood near the Mexican border, with small houses and busy streets.

Bloomingdale - Chicago: nondescript industrial neighborhood full of warehouses, convenience stores, and walk-up apartments.

Walnut Park - Kansas City, MO: nondescript working-class residential area with bungalows and two-flats.

I know that. It has a tiny downtown core of maybe 4 blocks (2 by 2); the rest is as suburban as it gets: isolated subdivisions, chain stores galore, a shopping mall, and wide collector streets. I was thinking more of the Bloomingdale Line, a former freight railroad, now a bike trail. (There's gotta be a relation between the railroad and the suburb, but I don't know it.)
