Salt Lake is also known as Āliamanu after a nearby crater, although Salt Lake itself is in a crater called Ālia pa‘akai — meaning "salt pond" in the Hawaiian language.
Salt Lake's growth was mainly attributed to the ease with which residents could travel to and from downtown Honolulu and Waikīkī, where many worked.
This neighborhood has some of the best public schools in Hawaii including Moanalua High School. Moanalua H.S. was dubbed by the Honolulu Advertiser as the Private School of Public Schools. This compares it to ʻIolani School and Punahou School.
According to the 2000 report of the United States Census Bureau, Salt Lake ranked eighth of all the neighborhood communities in Hawai‘i in terms of median annual household income. It ranked second in median home values. Waikīkī was highest.
Salt Lake is generally considered as affluent upper-middle class with equal distribution of European Americans and second and third generations of Asian Americans. It is a community of high-rise condominiums, mid-rise town-dwellings, and houses snaking around the remnants of a now freshwater lake. This lake and nearby public park are less than 10 minutes walk from the house.
The Moanalua Gardens are further inland to the north. One of its monkey pod trees is seen on Hitachi's Japanese TV commercials, and is occasionally referred to as Hitachi no ki (ja:日立の樹, "Hitachi tree") in Japan.
The gardens were a gift to the public from Damon and maintained by a trust since his death in 1924. It was one of Hawaiʻi's earliest public parks although has remained privately owned.
There are ~30,000 people living in Salt Lake. Based on surveys compiled by the University of Hawaii, residents are composed of mostly Honolulu professionals and military officers choosing to live off base. The neighborhood community is home to the families of officers and enlisted servicemen from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard and Navy.
