Where do the really wealthy families live in your city? I'm aware anyone that has the money can buy whatever house they can afford, so some Old Money people live in the New Money areas and vice-versa. Still, it seems like in most cities there are the traditionally wealthy or classy neighborhoods, and then newer neighborhoods that rich people live in that don't have quite the same feel. For new money, think athletes, Kardashians, lottery winners, guy who grew up poor but built a company up, etc.

Some examples:

Houston: River Oaks for Old Money, New Money in the Villages and far out suburbs like the Woodlands

Los Angeles: Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, Bel Air for Old Money, Calabassas for New Money.

Minneapolis: Lake of the Isles for Old Money, also some places around Lake Minnetonka, For New Money, maybe North Oaks.

How about other cities?
