The average household income in affluent neighborhoods is easily four times the national average. In these neighborhoods, homes can cost millions of dollars, which is way out of reach for the average individual. This year, income equality is a big factor in the elections and many politicians, along with American citizens, have been expressing their concerns about wealth inequality in our country. Since the 1970s, income inequality has increased and the United States is in the 30th percentile for income inequality worldwide.
With that being said, you may be wondering where the rich do live. One of the most obvious answers is in Hollywood or New York City. However, there are actually a number of neighborhoods throughout the country that you will not be able to live in unless you are prepared to dish out millions. In these neighborhoods, the median household income starts at $200,000 and up. Let’s check out the 15 richest neighborhoods in America.
