Coincidentally, Marin also has the most shopaholics? I never would have guessed that.

According to O's latest statement not increasing middle-class taxes, the national avg. for that extends up to $250k per household.

Now, assuming you're talking about people who make millions per year, then several places in Hawaii, California, Colorado and Connecticut come to mind.

Places like Brighton and Pittsford would fit the bill for the Rochester area.
