Well I guess you're not familiar with the Chenal area of West Little Rock.........

Or other areas in Little Rock such as Hickory Hills, Hickory Creek, Valley Falls Estates, Cammack Village. These are all very wealthy areas.

Cherry Hills Village, CO
Nichols Hills, OK

I'm pretty sure these are the wealthiest incorporated areas in my 2 states.

Yes although Belle Meade, TN is by far the wealthiest city in the state. Followed by Oak Hill, Forrest Hills, and Brentwood.

There are far wealthier areas, but this is overall the wealthiest City in the State.
I believe Sandy Springs has a higher income than Johns Creek. I just saw on the local news about two weeks ago that the average income for Sandy Springs is over $218,000.

Weston, Mass.

It's an exurban style suburb in Metro West Boston zoned with lots of acreage and feels semi-rural with lot woodlands and of course Colonial style homes and home to Republican anti-tax renegade Grover Norquist. It's also close to a lot of suburban employment hubs along the I-95/128 beltway home to defense, biotech, medical research, utility corporations, and pharmaceuticals.

Estimated median household income in 2009 was $197, 587

Technically speaking, the richest area in Louisiana is in the Mississippi Delta, has 4 people, a median income of around $150,000, and a 50% poverty rate (forgot this place's name). In more realistic terms, the North Shore suburbs/exurbs of New Orleans are the wealthiest area of any size in the state.
