Mapping America ? Census Bureau 2005-9 American Community Survey - NYTimes.com

According to those estimates, the wealthiest area in my county is in Los Altos Hills, with a census tract with a median househld income in excess of $200,000.

The poorest area in my county is a census tract in East San Jose, with a median househol income of around $30,000.

Not suprising, to be honest.

I believe the poorest is the Near West Side neighborhood of Syracuse and the Lyndon Hamlet/community in DeWitt is the wealthiest.

Income doesn't mean wealth

Almost no one (esp outsiders) knows what is one's precise net worth on any given day (or even year-end)

Uncomfortable question for commies is: what high-income job-relevant skills do these alleged poors have? Who said life has ever been fair? Do poors have weak DNA or weak parental values? So why should other presumably responsible, hardworking taxpayers be forced to redistribute wealth to those who were born w/weak DNA and/or made poor education/career choices in life? Kids/pets are a discretionary lifestyle choice, right? And why are so many of wealthiest in SiliconValley or Manhattan whites/Jews/Indians who grew up in middle-income suburbia somewhere but earned their own way up socio-economic ranks, despite alleged discrimination....without needing welfare or affirmative action to "solve" any possible DNA/parental/cultural-inspired weaknesses?

The wealthiest area in my county, Douglas County, CO may be the Pradera or Pinery neighborhoods in Parker, Diamond Ridge in Castle Rock, or southern Castle Pines. In terms of census tracts, the wealthiest is the southern Castle Pines tract ($156,000).

The "poorest" (yeah right) areas include the older areas of Castle Rock around downtown ($57,000) and older areas of Parker ($52,000).

Poorest in my county (Monmouth, NJ) are probably in parts of Asbury Park. Wealthiest are probably in Navesink, where Bon Jovi lives, and Colts Neck, where Springsteen lives.
