The 100 Richest Places In America

The richest communities in America for years have been in Silicon Valley and the New York City area. Now the Midwest is starting to make some noise. That’s one takeaway from the latest Bloomberg analysis of 2016 U.S. Census data. For the second year since Bloomberg started to compile the Richest 100, the nation’s top spot is Atherton, California. The town of six square miles is near Palo Alto, Stanford University and Menlo Park, the home of Facebook and other tech ventures. Atherton’s average household income was $443,403 in 2016, more than $50,000 higher than second-place Cherry Hills Village, Colorado. Newcomers to the list include three areas in suburban Chicago. The average in Clarendon Hills, Illinois, about 25 miles west of downtown Chicago, jumped 15 percent in 2016 from the prior year to break into the top 100 for the first time with a tally of $199,325. An average household income closer to $200,000 is now required to break into the top 100 compared with about $190,000 in last year’s Bloomberg analysis.

I can't tell if this is bait or not , but the serious explanation is probably because River Oaks is not a separate town unlike Highland Park

I've been to Old Greenwich and Darien, CT plenty of times. They're nice places, but I wouldn't have guessed they'd have that kind of household income. Mostly basic New England colonials. The cost of living in that area is astronomical.
