There are lots of ways to become rich these days. Of course, there’s the more “traditional” route of being a movie or television star, or writing a best-selling album and touring the country to promote your work. These days, however, tech-savvy geniuses who come up with great ideas that make our lives easier (or just a little more fun) are achieving celebrity status as well.
Of course, there are also those who were born into money and will pretty much be rich for the rest of their lives. These are likely some of the people you see on reality shows or at major Hollywood events, but you wonder “what exactly does he/she do?” Billionaires also achieve their status by working hard and growing their businesses, while getting sound financial advice and diversifying their portfolios.
Whether you prefer billionaires who got their fortunes similar to the way Steve Jobs did, or you think billionaires who have gone the “Kardashian” route to achieve wealth are more interesting, one thing is for sure: most people are completely curious to know how one person can make that much money. Here are 12 cities with the highest number of billionaires.

As of 2015, New York City has 78 billionaires, which is more than any other city in the entire world. Those who have lots of cash in the city include Michael Bloomberg, who is the former mayor of the city. Rupert Murdoch, who is a media mogul, is also among the group of New York billionaires. There are also successful business people from other parts of the world who travel to New York in order to further develop their fortunes and make new business deals. Even though there are 541 billionaires scattered around the United States, most of them have chosen New York as home for the professional opportunities and the culture that the city provides.
