I'm searching around for northern cities that are relatively prosperous, but most of them seem like they're within the corridor between Boston and Washington DC, which is way too crazy for me.

What are some nicer cities with good economies that are in the north, that are also east of the Mississippi River?

I should add that I'm not looking for a job myself, I just want to be in a place where people are doing better.

Albany-Schenectady-Troy and maybe Rochester NY, Grand Rapids MI, Madison WI, Columbus OH and maybe Indianapolis IN.

I think the type of work you are looking for is key as well.

Technically St. Paul is east of the Mississippi, and the economy of the Twin Cities is pretty strong.

OP explicitly said "outside of the Boswash Corridor".

I read it as, as long as it wasn't a megacity Boswash Corridor would be ok.

The Hartford Metro area fits OP criteria. It is not a MegaCity

No, the OP said "within the corridor". Hartford is definitely "within the corridor".
