Abstract

Residents of two kinds of suburban neighborhoods were asked to sort 84 Long Island communities into groups of similar places. Analysis of these groupings reveals a high degree of convergence between the two samples. People's perceptions of community similarities were found to be associated with community socioeconomic status, racial composition, population age, and housing density as indicated by census data. Geographic location also figured prominently in the groupings.
