Default So where do the rich live?

I haven't heard about the upscale neighborhoods in Detroit so I was wondering where do the rich live? You know in school there are certain schools that the rich kids go to, which ones are those? Do these neighborhoods even exist lol?

The wealthier people live in the birmingham/bloomfield hills/bloomfield twp/west bloomfield area. there are also wealthier areas in northville, novi, northern oakland county, the walled lake area, and I'm probably missing some. The Grosse Pointes as well.
The most prestigious private schools in the Detroit area are probably Detroit Country Day School and the entire Cranbrook school system.

Grosse Pointe has a lot of "old money" and an aging population. Same goes for Bloomfield Hills, thats why the BH school district have to close two schools. Some of the "newer" homes and money are in the Northern and western suburbs. Novi, Northville, Plymouth, South Lyon and the Township's around these cities have a lot of the newer money and schools. They are also the areas that are building schools opposed to closing them.

Real Wealth?

Old Money -- most, but not all, of the Pointes.

Old New Money -- Bloomfield Hills.

Current New Money -- Bloomfield Township, West Bloomfield, Birmingham.

New New Money -- Oakland Township.

Palmer Park still has some wealthy people (and gorgeous homes). A few remain in Indian Villiage. Not sure about Boston Edison, but it appears so.

Grosse Ile has some old money and some extremely wealthy new money families but they are fully mixed in with middle class and some barely middle class families.

Dearborn still has some pockets of wealth. There are also some extremely wealthy families in Northville, Novi, South Lyon and a lot in Ann Arbor.
