I will. Scranton has both Green Ridge and "The Hill" as its "old money" neighborhoods, and both are seeing reinvestment lately after years of neglect. These areas may be rich by city standards, but the residents are still middle-class by American standards. As for me, I'm hoping that once my business is successful, I will also be able to raise my family in one of those ornate Victorians with the turrets, wraparound porches, widows' walks, etc.

River Oaks, Houston? Its neither suburban, nor middle class. Extremely wealthy Houston enclave. One of the wealthiest in the country. Ken Lay lived in River Oaks

Don't forget River Oaks is within the City of Houston.

Highland Park, TX is also an old-money neighborhood. Unlike River Oaks, it is a separate municipality. I believe Senator Hutchison lives there.

Highland Park is NOT middle class--it is far too pretensious and snooty to be a middle class area. Neither is River Oaks, really. Frisco, Lakewood, and west Plano are much more white-collar middle class than Highland Park.
