Um, NYC is tops, followed by LA. Everywhere else is a major drop off. Boston, SF, Chicago are likely next. Atlanta? Frankly the entire state of Georgia is a ghetto to me.

Not sure if some of these qualify more as suburbs or neighborhoods but:

New York City -Upper East Side, Park Avenue, The Hamptons
Los Angeles -Beverly Hills, Bel Air
San Diego -La Jolla, Coronado
San Francisco- Corona Heights, Marin County
Denver -Cherry Hills Village, Cherry Creek
Minneapolis -Edina, Warehouse District
Philadelphia -Wallingford, Main Line District

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

In Nashville, it would be 37205 (Belle Meade) which has average home values of $925,200 (nearly 9 times the state average). Al Gore lives in Belle Meade. His house is so large, his annual gas and electric bill is about $30,000.

According to the Higley 1000, 2 of the country's 100 wealthiest neighborhoods are in Nashville, both in the Belle Meade area.

Corona Heights is nice, but there are several more prestigious neighborhoods.

Pacific Heights( is home to 20+ Billionaires)
Presidio Heights
Sea Cliff
Russian Hill
Telegraph Hill
Cow Hollow
The Marina
Monterey Heights

There are many more rich areas but the above mentioned have the most prestige.

Outside The City itself, there are dozens of upscale and prosperous cities and towns in the surrounding Bay Area.

The Hamptons is more of a favorite vacation destination for rich NY'ers, than it is a neighborhood or suburb. It is about a 2 hour car/train ride from NYC to the Hamptons.
