Chicago's North Shore suburbs have some quaint, beautiful old money areas. In the city, neighborhoods like Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast have some stretches with beautiful, old-money mansions.

All are close to or near areas of those cities with a similar look/feel as well.
In terms of city neighborhoods: Buffalo has Parkside, Central Park, the Delaware District(can be included with Elmwood Village), Park Meadow and parts of North Buffalo.

Rochester has East Avenue, Browncroft, Cobbs Hill/Upper Monroe, Park Avenue and a portion of North Winton Village.

Syracuse has Sedgwick, Strathmore, Scottholm(within larger Meadowbrook neighborhood), Berkeley Park, Shotwell Park area of the Eastwood section/neighborhood and Ross Park and Willumae in the Court-Woodlawn Neighborhood.

Schenectady has the General Electric Realty Plot and the Union Street/Central Park area(inc. Union Triangle and Upper Union).

Utica has parts of South Utica(south of Burrstone Road/Memorial Parkway, i.e.-Proctor Boulevard) and a portion of outer SE Utica just north of Memorial Parkway.

Binghamton has parts of its West Side(south of Main Street around Receration Park and Riverside Drive) and SW portion of city around/south of Vestal Avenue.

Niagara Falls has the DeVeaux neighborhood, an outer North Side neighborhood.

Elmira has a portions of the outer West Side.

Auburn has the Hoopes Park/East Genesee Street area, the Lake Avenue area and a portion of the historic South Street corridor.

Watertown has much of the outer Washington Street/Thompson Park/outer State Street portion of the city(S/SE/E).

Rome has the area of North Madison Street near the old Rome Free Academy/West Chestnut/North George.

Definitely old, harkening back to the steel era.

Buckhead itself is not an old money neighborhood but a district within (and comprising about 20% of) the city. It's not in and of itself uniformly old money, but contains a lot of old money neighborhoods within it, ie:

Brookwood Hills
Haynes Manor
Tuxedo Park
Chastain Park
Collier Hills
North Buckhead

Outside of Buckhead, I would say that Lenox Park, Morningside, Brookhaven and Druid Hills would make the cut.

Upper East Side of Manhattan is still the most impressive I've seen.

There's simply nothing like Park Avenue or Madison Avenue.
