ArcMap... assumed (similar for Pro)

You have the point as a layer or a selection in a layer of intersections... assumed

You have the census data at the required level of detail you need in polygon form... assumed

You have many options: start with Select Layer By Location—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop

whereby you can select the census data within a distance of the intersection using all the polygons that intersect/are completely within/whatever choice you want. 

Once you have the selection you can save it as a new layer, summarize the statistics within the table Summarizing data in a table—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop  and a variety of other things.

More details if this doesn't suffice as a start
