The Demographics of Where I Live...

Ramit from I Will Teach You To Be Rich posted today on the demographics of where he lives and I went to check out the site that he got it from. It is pretty cool to see, too bad the census info is a little old (from 2000). Maybe this will end up being the next viral post in the PF Blogosphere when everyone checks the demographics for their neck of the woods.

The top half are the stats for the area that I live near now:

And the bottom half are the stats for where I used to live
and still currently work in Poughkeepsie, NY



Pretty interesting stuff, would love to see the latest data to see how it has changed since there have been a bunch of new houses built over where I live now. You can probably tell from the data that Poughkeepsie is much more of a city than where I live now, which is a little more rural.

On thing that I have a hard time believing is the median rent being down around $600. When I first came to the area, I was paying closer to $800, but I guess there must have been some better deals out there according to this data.

Also, how nice would it be to still be able to get a nice house for those prices listed up there? Don't see anything worth looking at within $100,000 of those prices around here anymore.

Ramit is the guy who writes at IWillTeachYouToBeRich -- not Neville. Please don't make the mistake of confusing an honest, intelligent guy like Ramit with that toad Nev.

I checked out the IWillTeachYouToBeRich site and I like the guy. I tend to agree with him right on with most of what he posts.

If we are into fashion, we are on a lookout for cheap Coach Wallets . We know that these bags are very good deals and by getting these Coach Madison designs at a cheaper rate, we are surely getting ourselves into something good. But sometimes, the Coach Bonnie that are seen everywhere turn out to be rip offs. That is why we are advising you to be careful when you are getting cheap Coach Gallery .

And if you want to be like the trendy and the well dressed then it's time to switch to ED Hardy .This hip fashion brand is the one that many stars wear when they want to show off their attitude. ED Hardy Shoes is the final word in funky youth wear. Often termed as street wear also, hardy shirt is hugely inspired by the tattoo designs of hardy shirts.

Ladies who follow trends are long for the clean lines and creative designs of Christian Louboutin Sale. Women, who can't pay hefty prices, however very much aspire to be stylish, spend sensibly. These ladies select wholesale Christian Louboutin Pumps. Clever buyers don't let this expense of elite fashion shoes keep them away from buying the finest. Women who want luxury Christian Louboutin Boots of a renowned trendsetter know the way to have theirs. These women decide on wholesale Christian Louboutin Sandals because of much quality at a portion of the charge.
