WESTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Nine Westchester neighborhoods have made the list of the Top 25 Richest Neighborhoods In the New York City Suburbs.

Stephen Higley, a professor emeritus of urban social geography at the University of Montevallo, ranked the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. based on American Community Survey 2006 - 2010 data, according to a report from Business Insider. 

"New York City has long been considered the playground of America's millionaires and billionaires," Business Insider representatives wrote in the report. "But as many of the city's high earners start families and seek more space, they move out to the suburbs surrounding the city."

The entire list, including methodology, can be viewed online at The Higley 1000 website

Wow! It sure must be nice. But as they say, it can't buy happiness!

The title of the article is misleading, since the only part of Mamaroneck included in the listing is Larchmont Manor, which is only one part of Larchmont Village and not an area typical of the entire Town of Mamaroneck. Furthermore, there are parts of Larchmont Manor that are far wealthier than other parts of Larchmont Manor, even though Larchmont Manor is only about 1/2 of 1 square mile in size.

That is right...high salaries do create effort.. From Rye..The "Garnet" Jewel...comes as good an education as can be found...hence..Young Scholars for the World...Good Bread!

2nd Richest Neighborhood in New York and look what you get to live next to. Rye should be proud. America the Beautiful
