A number of sites offer an array of hyperlocal data to represent the character of neighborhoods. But a new site is taking a more simplistic approach.

Neighborhood Appeal portrays geographies (down to the ZIP code level) by assigning them two grades. One grade is based on a proprietary algorithm that factors in crime, pollution, scenic beauty and weather. The other is user-generated.

The site said it believes the user-generated grades will become “the most reliable indicator of a neighborhood’s appeal on the Internet,” according to a statement.

“A lot of websites that analyze neighborhoods provide complicated numbers or statistics,” said founder Michael Nirenberg. “Any child knows what an F means.”
