Columbia Point is a blended neighborhood; between Gate Boulevard and East 23rd Street it is a upper middle class residential neighborhood with several isolated shopping districts. West of Roberts Avenue it is a lower middle class residential neighborhood with isolated pockets of heavy industry. North of Hotir Street it is almost exclusively heavy manufacturing with just a few lower class residential areas. Over the last thirty years an influx of Dominican immigrants have settled in the Saltim Street area giving the area a unique cultural flavor which has earned it the nickname of the [[Luperón]]. The Gotham Zoo is along the Channel, off Donner Street.
