Neighborhood Boundaries

The Census does not observe official neighborhood boundaries, but it does make information available for units called Neighborhood Tabulation Areas. These are approximations of neighborhoods and may not line up exactly with the boundaries that you would draw. The NTA for the East Village is MN22. You can find population, race, and housing information by NTA at the Dept. of City Planning's website, here.
