How to find neighborhood demographic info

How would i go about finding neighborhood demographics data for the neighborhoods I lived in during 1990 and 2000? I would prefer something more detailed than city data. I want to split the data down to the level of the few surrounding neighborhoods.

  • The U.S. was fully covered by tracts for the first time in 1990. (Technically, many of these were "block numbering areas" (BNAs), nominally not census tracts, but the BNA data are delivered exactly as tract data, so it's effectively full coverage.) There's also nationwide coverage of block groups and blocks in 1990, so identifying sets that match up with neighborhoods should be do-able. All of these data are freely available via IPUMS NHGIS.
