Can you give an example, with specifics? Not that I don't believe you,  
mind, but I'm curious what bound this neighborhood together. I quite  
honestly don't know anyone, that given a chance to work on their own  
projects regardless of income wouldn't jump at the chance. Not "just  
lay around", but volunteer with various groups, sing, play music,  
learn a new skill, etc. And primarily, these are people who are no  
more than lower middle class socioeconomically, not just the  
overeducated uppermiddle class brainiac types.
