I think Atlanta wins this hands down but i'm sure the Philadelphians will have a lot of negative irrelevant comments.

Philadelphia most definitely, at least in that region... When people talk about OLDDD Money...that is what they are talking about. Atlanta has some rich people... Philadelphia has WEALTHY people, some of the richest burbs in the country. I'd imagine the downtown condos are also more pricey in Philadelphia.

Atlanta has a lot of Old money especially in Buckhead where there are tree line mansions from decades ago upwards of $5 million dollars. Atlanta is definitely viewed as a more affluent city in terms of shopping, dining, housing, celeb status, etc.

Atlanta has its fair share of old money and also the amount of New money in Atlanta is staggering.

If you research Atlanta suburbs, you will see that it has some of the wealthiest suburbs in the country such as Duluth, Alpharetta, John's Creek, and Roswell.

I lived in Philly and also one of it's surburbs, Conshohocken. Not really impressed. I also worked in Horsham which was a piece of crap town about 40 min outside center city.
