I do know that Ecuadorians, Peruvians, and Colombians do well in terms of education, and income too I believe. I know many people from these groups living in the non ghetto parts of Long Island and New Jersey. Levittown, NY is known for being lily white, but it's actually over 10% Hispanic, of predominately Peruvian background if I'm not mistaken. I heard that Peruvian-Americans are almost as likely to graduate college as Jewish and Indian-Americans, who are both considered model minorities (well, Jews are mostly white but still).
You forgot the most obvious one :

Levittown CDP, New York
Total: 51,073
Not Hispanic or Latino: 44,824
Hispanic or Latino: 6,249
Puerto Rican: 2,031
Colombian: 751
Salvadoran: 648
Ecuadorian: 507
Peruvian: 450

Dominican (Dominican Republic): 444
Other Hispanic or Latino: 332
Cuban: 309
All other Hispanic or Latino: 170
Other South American: 148
Spaniard: 140
Guatemalan: 137
Other Central American: 114
Mexican: 109
Argentinean: 77
Honduran: 72
Uruguayan : 66
Chilean: 24
Spanish: 22
Bolivian: 19
Venezuelan: 11
Costa Rican: 0
Nicaraguan: 0
Panamanian: 0
Paraguayan: 0
Spanish American: 0

I had a Colombian and a Peruvian friend after I finished high school. Both of them came from families who sacrificed everything for their kids. I haven't spoken to either of them for a very long time, but they both finished college and I would presume they became successful.

I'm third-generation Mexican-American. My grandfather came here with his parents to pick avocados. He grew up, bought up a ton of CA real estate, and died a very wealthy man. Most of his kids grew up to be middle-class or better (the infusion of his wealth upon his death didn't hurt). Very few of his grandkids know of a life any less than that (however, I am one who does).

Oh wow I was wrong! I wouldn't be surprised if the Latino numbers for Levittown were even higher for 2018, though. I'd be interested to see the numbers for nearby East Meadow as well.

And yeah, I know there are many middle class and higher Mexican-Americans,, I just wonder where you find the highest concentration of them.

Interesting, I'm actually familiar with a lot of these places. Are all of those percentages the top 3 for each group?

And interesting to see Brentwood on here, because it's considered a bad neighborhood . It actually looks really normal on the surface, but unfortunately there's been a lot of MS-13 related violence lately.

Each city listed had to have among the highest percentages of $75K+ households among their group (in many cases it was at least double the average, in others it was only 50% of it, or even only slightly above average), and then I sorted by the amount of total $75K+ households in that group.

I'm more surprised that we didn't see more TX, and am a bit underwhelmed by some of the CA locations. I'm astonished at the almost complete lack of Midwest, Northwest, and Interior West. The non-FL East ones were nice surprises.

Rancho Cucamonga actually surprised me, I lived there at one time, and I would have never pegged it as a place for wealthy Mexicans or Spaniards. Nearby Fontana (particularly North Fontana) fits that description better IMO (but Fontana as a whole has a ton of poor as well).
