The words have a very similar meaning. Vecindario is pertaining to the vicinity which is basically a neighborhood at least in a city.

Barrio is neighborhood, perhaps one with a specific characteristic.

Looking at the RAE, the first definition of vecindario is the group of people in an area (conjunto de vecinos, the neighbors). The second meaning is the register of inhabitants (people in an area). The third meaning given is vecindad, and only the cualidad de vecino meaning (neighborliness). These meanings all describe the neighbors themselves, not the area they live in.

That is the difference.

That's an eye opener. RAE is the gold standard for Spanish. I do think that many Spanish speakers say vecindario but mean barrio.

Yeah, I think native speakers in every language get a few things wrong. We Americans certainly do.
