Step 1: Drive down a road.

Step 2: Note every street name.

Are the streets some cutesy theming combination clearly made by some marketing committee? Do they honor modern-day thieves and/or rapists, or the saints that those groups pray to?

You go down a road, and see "Flutterby Point Blvd", "Tinselgrass Lane", and "Oakheart Circle" as you drive by. Then down another road, you see "Jussie Smollet Memorial Lane", "Floyd Parkway", and "BLM Blvd" down the way.

Without any further data, no demographics like "mixed neighborhood", no tax information, no even looking at the general wealth displayed on or in front of the homes, I think it's pretty easy to guess which one is going to have better long-term property values.

To quote Chris Rock, "Martin Luther King stood for nonviolence. Now what’s Martin Luther King? A street. And I don’t give a fuck where you are in America, if you on Martin Luther King Boulevard, there’s some violence going down."

From NYC, can confirm. Though the MLK St in St Pete Is pretty nice. The exception that proves the rule I suppose.

The one in Lakewood, NJ isn't too bad either.
