For those moving to a new city, a tool from Homethinking.com helps consumers choose a neighborhood by identifying which are most similar to where they currently live.
Users who visit neighborhoods.homethinking.com can compare neighborhoods of several U.S. cities and get a feel for which may be the best fit for them based on scores derived from ratings of people, activities, arts/culture, and vibe.
The neighborhood scores are initially calculated using demographic data collected from the U.S. Census and other public sources. Wide numbers of demographic factors such as age, marital status, whether a household has children, and the frequency of art and cultural activities, are compared.
