San Bruno Neighborhoods Mapped by Wealth

A new website shows the median income of neighborhoods in San Bruno.

San Mateo County ranks third of all California counties in median household income, and San Bruno plays an interesting part in that.

Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks, a website that compiles American Community Survey data, has broken down every city in America by neighborhood and listed them all by average household income, and the results are quite interesting.

The site separates San Bruno into eight sections — the eight census tracts that divide the cities. 

The wealthiest neighborhood of San Bruno is the area between 280 and Skyline Boulevard north of Sneath Lane, census tract 6037, where the median household income is $99,583.

In contrast, the poorest area of the city is the east side of town on the airport side of El Camino Real, where the median household income is $58,539.

Middle class in California ranges between $53,000 to $67,000 according to the survey.

Who is in charge of what stories to post at the patch? Bring back Martin.

We don't need a study to tell us that. Why divide the city with this kind of news?all you have to do is check home prices Da

Martin left for a better job. Patch is in deep trouble and doesn't want to pay journalists for what they are worth. What Patch was expecting editors to do on a shoestring budget at low pay is ridiculous. That is why so many Patch sites no longer have a dedicated editor -- they are leaving or being eliminated/consolidated -- and there is very little local news anymore. Patch doesn't want to have to pay for editors when it can aggregate stories that have been published elsewhere or rely on unpaid bloggers. You can read in the business press and journalism journals how badly Patch.com is doing.
