Shaughnessy is an almost entirely residential neighbourhood spanning about 447 hectares in a relatively central locale. It is bordered by 16th Avenue to the North, 41st Avenue to the South, Oak Street to the East, and Arbutus Street/West Boulevard to the West. The neighbourhood is characterized by the affluence of its residents: at an average annual household income of $136,252 and family income of $153,895, it is the wealthiest neighbourhood in Vancouver. It is also the site of many historical homes, as many of the neighbourhood's homes were built before or during World War II.
