Wow, how can Bordeaux be poorer than Marseille?

I've never been to Marseille, but thought it had some significant economic issues. I have been to Bordeaux and it seemed very rich, in fact it felt richer than anywhere in France outside of Paris. The city center is very posh and upscale, and the suburbs are quite nice. Marseille looks relatively poor on Google streetview, but obviously that can be misleading.

And Athens richer than Manchester and Birmingham? I'm not saying it isn't true, but you sure wouldn't know it if you visited these places.
