Average income? "Rich" seems to refer more to net worth, not income. That would be a different list.

Outside of 9 tracts in chicagoland, and 7 tracts in Florida, everything else on the list is either bos-wash or california.

Looking at those areas, i.e. Upper East Side, Tribeca/Lower Manhattan, Geenwich, Melo Park/Atherton, I'm going to take a *wild guess* that they also have the highest net worth.

And all of the 7 in Florida probably have their wealth generated directly or indirectly from the Bos-Wash corridor.

Nope. Most expensive in Hawaii is Honolulu's Hawaii Kai and the average income there is 'only' $246,648. Richest people in Hawaii are just vacationers/part timers from Silicon Valley, etc.

Well Larry Ellison owns his own island—Lanai—and assuming an entire island qualifies as a census tract, that tract should have an income and/or net worth that makes all the others look like chump change.

I'm pretty sure any tract where average incomes are $500K per person is going to be in the top tier for net worth too.

Spent 6 weeks on Oahu courtesy of Uncle Sam with very little to do once and got a severe case of island fever (boredom). Couldn’t wait to get home to CA.

His primary residence is Woodside, CA so average income there is probably nothing.

What matters is standard of living or cost of living. You have to make a lot more in NYC or places like CA (for example) to have the same standard of living as in many other areas of the country. There are extraordinarily affluent areas of cities such as Houston, Dallas, Atlanta (the old wealth areas like River Oaks and Highland Park), but those people don't have to have as high of an income or worth due to the lower cost of living, especially property.

Every time there's a list like this (and it has happened multiple times), we go through the same kinds of posts and reminders.

Yes, a ton of overlap, but still a pretty different list. It's a half-assed headline that doesn't say what it means.

I have family on islands off the west coast of Norway. I spent a week on one that has a total population of about 50 people. I loved meeting family, I loved walking around the island, and by the first afternoon I was ready to leave ...

Yeah, tract 713, the 9th Illinois on one that list, is a great place to live in Chicago, and probably has a standard of living close to the top ten in Manhattan despite having a bit more than half the average income.

I think this is more or less true (though it takes a bunch of caveats and asterisks). But I wonder: If someone said all those same things but the topic was China versus the US, rather than Texas versus New York, would the Texans among us still agree?

Admitting that the balance of numbers isn't the same, I'm just curious.

Metro NYC, SF Bay Area, Chicago, DC, LA and Boston are the only cities that appear.
