In this article, I am going to be discussing all about Downingtown in Pennsylvania. I am also be talking about the pop culture in this place. In the year 1958, the movie The Blob was actually filmed in and around Downing town, and the diner was actually featured in the movie. Downingtown dinner was actually sold and also transported to another state and has been replaced with a very similar 1950s style diner. They actually started continuing the advertisement of the movie, and it has changed the ownership many times. Over the years, it has gone through a lot of innovations and changes. As of 2021, it is still open. You can actually visit this place, if you are ever near Downingtown.
Here are some statistics and demographics of the place.
As of the 2010 census, the borough was actually 76% non-Hispanic white people and 12% black or African-American people. It also had a few Asians and Native Americans. 7.2% of the population were either Latino or Hispanic. Downingtown actually has a mass population of residents who are very well known for having an Italian ancestry. The town also has two very different Italian American organisations and is listed as an Italian American stronghold in the United States of America. There were more than 3100 households, out of which almost 31.2% of people had children under the age of 18 years, living with them, and 42.8% were married couples living together. 12.9% had a female householder with no husband but with children. The average household size was almost 3 people, and this was very common indeed.
The population was actually very spread out and with 25.3%, under the age of 18, 8.7% from 18 to 24 years and 32.6% from 25 to 44 years old. There were 19% of people who are 45 to 64. The median age was actually 35 years, and for every 100 females, there were 89.9 males. This means, there were more females in the place than males.
The median income for any given household in this area was around $45,000. The males had a mean income of at least $38,900 versus $29,000 for females. The per capita income for this place was around $21,000.
The downtown area school district is actually the school district there are operating schools in the entire area. There are four elementary schools, and they have a high school and middle school as well. The high school is called Downingtown East High school.
