Baltimore is criminally underrated for having such a wealth of historic and stately architecture. But I think people in the Northeast Corridor, at least, know better.

Not saying they're the best or the wealthiest areas, but here are a few of my personal favorites:


Minneapolis -


Area around the chain of lakes has some large housing mixed in with somewhat smaller housing. The backdrop of the Lakes and the activities that come with them are awesome.

-----------------------------------------


St Paul -


the Victorians along Summit Avenue

--------------------------------------------


Chicago - Gold Coast and Lincoln Park (some north shore hoods too)


Gold coast - I love the mix of old mansion mixed with the high rises and beautiful views of the Lake


https://goo.gl/Ts4iDf


Lincoln Park - Favorite neighborhood in Chicago and has relatively expensive housing of many sizes.


https://goo.gl/ZC4rLx
-------------------------------------------


Philadelphia - Chestnut Hill and Society Hill (some Mainline hoods too)


Chestnut Hill - Quaint neighborhood with mansions and mini mansions


https://goo.gl/vn268a


Society Hill - Not too sure on the old money aspect but it is one of the wealthier and more expensive hoods in Philly. Its also very quaint and beautiful


https://goo.gl/bxBAoD
--------------------------------------------


Atlanta - Druid Hills and Tuxedo Park (a few other neighborhoods too)


I love the architecture and the huge lots


https://goo.gl/rcP5Vq


Tuxedo Park - nice housing on huge lots
