Drive through Glendora, and you will notice that some blocks are more affluent than others. But just how wide is the disparity between different parts of town?
Thanks to the efforts of the website, Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks, we have the answers to those questions. The site uses data compiled from the 2006-2010 American Community Survey to show median household income by census tract.
The data shows that the median household income in Glendora ranges from $53,696 to $136,786. According to the data, the census tracts above East Sierra Madre Avenue and west of North Cullen Avenue have a median household income of $136,786. The tracts above East Foothill Boulevard but east of North Cullen Avenue have a median household income of $107,461 and $108,229. Move further south below East Foothill Boulevard and east of South Loraine Avenue, the median household income drops to $83,551 to $89,000. Cross the street of South Loraine, and the median household income drops to $58, 698. That is, however, still above the statewide middle class range of $53,000 to $67,000. Tracts below the 210 freeway and west of South Sunflower show a median household income of $75,325.
The figures tend to drop off when looking at tracts in neighboring cities. In Azusa, the lowest median household income is $35,656. In Charter Oak and San Dimas, the median household income is around $64,000.
