Zillow Neighborhoods

Here is something that might be useful for voter registration and GOTV efforts. This Google Earth KMZ file contains boundaries for nearly 7,000 neighborhoods in 150 cities. The file is based on shapefiles released by yesterday.

View in Google Earth (6.5 mb)

State- by-state shapefiles are available here:

Additional details are posted on the Zillow Blog.

Ctrl-Click on the map to display the city and region ID in addition to the neighborhood name.

For faster load time, Google Earth initially displays boundaries and labels for Arizona only. Click on the sidebar boxes to display additional states.

Labels are sorted by state and city in the sidebar. At some point, we may update the file to include socioeconomic data estimates from the SF3 file of the 2000 census.
