That is a simplified and short sited list. Philadelphia for example on a metro level is more affluent than most of the cities on your affluent list (the Main Line is one of the wealthiest suburban corridors in the nation). Philadelphia as a city has a major poverty problem, but it is hardly void affluence.

When I think of Charlotte I do not think of affluence. It is a solid middle class city and metro with wealthy pockets.

Baltimore is another city with extremely wealthy outer lying regions.
