Lansdowne Statistics

Here are a few statistics on Lansdowne posted last February on the Philadelphia Inquirer’s website:

Population: 10,579 (2010).
Median income: $60,732 (2009).
Size: 1.2 square miles.
Homes for sale: 70
Median sale price (single-family home): $115,000.
Housing stock: 4,999 units, most large singles dating from the 1880s to 1930s.

Clearly not the upper-middle class community we remember, but were we only kidding ourselves back then?  They still seem to have much of our old spirit.
