Houston is pretty good metro wise but, city wise the west side isn't dominant, Everything within 5 miles of I-ten North or South going out to Katy is "wealthy".

Baton Rouge probably counts. Based on your definition one could count areas like South Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Denham Springs, Walker, Central, and Zachary as a ring of comfortable middle class areas without too much poverty, which is most prevalent in North Baton Rouge.

In Baltimore the wealth is spread out among several suburban areas like Howard County, Towson, Bel Air, Hunt Valley though Howard County does have the reputation of being the most elite.
