Well, not necessarily....and not everywhere on the north side is well off. Actually a number of it is solidly middle class with some lower class in there. There are also sections of the south side which are still dense. I think people forget that the south side used to be denser than almost anything on the north side was or has ever been. Bronzeville on the south side used to actually be 70,000 per sq mile in the 30s or 40s for over 125,000 people and the areas around it were over 40,000 per sq mile for a few hundred thousand others.

Keep in mind that Lincoln Park on the north side is 20,000 per sq mile with a household income of $82K per year.

* Edgewater | 33,000 per sq mile | North Side | Median Household Income = $43K
* Rogers Park | 30,000 per sq mile | North Side | MHI = $39K
* Albany Park | 27,000 per sq mile | North Side | MHI = $46K
* Uptown | 24,000 per sq mile | North Side | MHI = $40K
* Logan Square | 23,000 per sq mile | Northwest Side | MHI = $49K
* Hermosa | 21,000 per sq mile | Northwest Side | MHI = $42K
* West Ridge | 20,000 per sq mile | North Side | MHI = $47K
* Avondale | 20,000 per sq mile | Northwest Side | MHI = $46K
* Belmont Cragin | 20,000 per sq mile | Northwest Side | MHI = $42K
* South Lawndale | 18,000 per sq mile | Southwest Side | MHI = $33K
* Gage Park | 18,000 per sq mile | Southwest Side | MHI = $36K
* South Shore | 17,000 per sq mile | South Side | MHI = $27K
* Brighton Park | 17,000 per sq mile | Southwest Side | MHI = $36K
* Chicago Lawn | 16,000 per sq mile | Southwest Side | MHI = $36K
* Kenwood | 16,000 per sq mile | South Side | MHI = $39K
* Hyde Park | 16,000 per sq mile | South Side | MHI = $45K
* West Elsdon | 15,000 per sq mile | Southwest Side | MHI = $35K
* Bridgeport | 15,000 per sq mile | South Side | MHI = $35K

I love both cities, but im gonna admit that the best parts are Manhattan. Brooklyn, Loop/Near North Side and Northside.
Totally.













More than half of those are from the ugly cess pool of Northern NJ by the way, in the shadows of that awful place called Newark. The others are from NYC's outer boroughs and Long Island.

Looks pretty beautiful (and typical might I add) to me. Far from the apparent cess pool surrounding NYC. The cess pool 20 million people live in, more than any other metro region. NY and NJ must be doing something right.

Who said I was only talking about visual aesthetic?

Btw, these pictures are basically Upstate NY, but without the high cost and proximity to Newark, or the Bronx, or Staten Island, or Long Island.

North Jersey is mostly concrete wasteland, with nice suburbs and towns mixed in. Mostly the former.
