Plano, Frisco, The Woodlands, Sugar Land, & Round Rock are all wealthy Texas suburbs.

If we're talking large cities its Dallas then Houston.

In Philadelphia: Rittenhouse Square, Chestnut Hill, Society Hill
Philly suburbs: Gladwyne (#1), Villanova, Bryn Mawr, Wayne, Penn Valley, Wynnewood, Merion Station, Haverford, Berwyn, Chadds Ford, Devon, Paoli, Swarthmore, Chester Springs.

Pretty much everywhere in the Main Line.

We would be much higher up if one of our unincorporated cities wasn't included in the data.

If my township was incorporated like Bloomfield Township, at 58K people, we'd be around 4th or 5th in PA.

The Main Line near Philadelphia underscores how coveted were the old railroad suburbs. That line was excellently maintained, not for the commuter runs but for the through trains (railroads cared about intercity passenger runs in those days). Many of the wealthiest Chicago suburbs are along the UP-North line. Connecticut and New York, similar situation.

For Pennsylvania, anywhere along the Mainline, most likely Gladwyne. Gladwyne is an old money, and new money town.

you got it all wrong. The wealthiest City is West University Place.

The Woodlands is not a City but it was listed as the wealthiest place with over 50,000 people.

Overall the wealthiest place in Texas is Piney Point Village:

Piney Point Village city, Texas $133,558
Barton Creek CDP, Texas $110,504
Westover Hills town, Texas $98,573
Highland Park town, Texas $97,008
Hunters Creek Village city, Texas $88,821
Bunker Hill Village city, Texas $86,434

Hill Country Village city, Texas $77,374
Mustang town, Texas $75,692
West University Place city, Texas $69,674
Hilshire Village city, Texas $66,620

Dark Blue is Houston,
Purple is Austin
Red is FW
Olive is Dallas
Light Blue is SA

In Oregon I guess it must be Lake Oswego. Ashland and perhaps Bend also have some higher income residents. Oregon doesn't seem like a very wealthy state. The state as a whole seems to be on the poor side with alot of poverty in many areas. There are some higher income residents in parts of Portland and Bend as well. Overall though Oregon has some definite overtones of Appalachia.

Beverley Hills in Los Angeles, Ca

But there might be a smaller wealthier city in Marin County which is one of the wealthiest counties in the state. And specifically probably Corte Madera.

In the Pittsburgh MSA, based on median household income (2000)

$147,298 - Fox Chapel
$115,672 - Sewickley Heights
$105,006 - Ben Avon Heights
$102,351 - Marshall Township
$102,320 - Peters Township
$101,690 - Upper St. Clair
$100,125 - Rosslyn Farms
$99,144 - Edgeworth
$92,820 - Bradford Woods
$87,627 - Franklin Park

There's been healthy income growth in the Pittsburgh MSA since 2000, so all the above numbers should have increased nicely.
