All of these areas are Jewish, btw. Probably a majority for all, some much more than 50%.

Highland Park, IL isn't prestigious or even very expensive.

And it has one of the best transportation coverage in Manhattan and much of New York City in general too. As well as all the action on Amsterdam Ave and Broadway with the plethora of shops and restaurants and Central Park on the eastern side of the neighborhood and Riverside Park on the western side with its gorgeous view of the Hudson and New Jersey and the kinetic chaos of Midtown to the south and the lovely Columbia University campus grounds and The Cloisters to the north! I just got to visit this place whenever I visit the NYC again

Beverly Hills probably given Iranian Jewish population. The rest, definitely not majority Jewish.

I thought Palm Beach would be, not as sure about Highland Park. Upper West Side maybe not anymore, but it must be. 40% of Manhattan's white population is Jewish, and the Upper West Side is known for being Jewish for Manhattan standards. Hmm, maybe you're right. Jewish population of the Upper West Side is about 70,000. Population 209,000.

Wikipedia says Beverly Hills is 61%.

I'll trade Beverly Hills for Santa Monica or even Redondo Beach
I'll trade Highland Park for a highrise in Lincoln Park or Lakeview right in the city
I'll trade Palm Beach for a canal home or beach front condo in Fort Lauderdale
I could hang with the Upper West Side considering all of Manhattan is at my doorstep and would likely have a less stifling snob factor than say Palm Beach or Beverly Hills.
