Compare those with the Baltimore post or the Myers Park post, there's a big difference.

Agree - University Heights was built firmly middle class, with single family mixed with some doubles constructed primarily in the late 1920s. Same is true for the North Park neighborhood. Better examples of "old moneyed" would be the nearby LeBrun Circle in Amherst (adjacent to Grover Cleveland Park where the US Open was held in 1912), or the nearby Central Park neighborhood in Buffalo (linked on a previous post).

I’m getting under the OP’s skin by being silly about Old Money among the tarheels and— as fascinating as social hierarchies may be as a topic — I kind of agree with Katarina that ‘old money’ is a divisive and pejorative term to be throwing around. All the OP really meant in starting this thread was to feature nice, high-end, old fashioned city neighborhoods, of which almost American city of any size has at least one or two.
Not necessarily. The Battery in Charleston was Ground Zero for Old Money; now it's mostly high profile financiers from NYC that dig the idea of pretending to be Old Charleston Money.
That is the typical situation in most 'Old Money' neighborhoods in the US today. Like my mother (who certainly knew the territory) used to say, "Most of those people were 'house poor' two generations ago".
And yet, they're still considered "Old Money Neighborhoods".
