That's a huge question! Brooklyn is enormous, it's like a small country. You need to say what you're looking for and people can help you.

This is a pretty broad question and hard to give an accurate description . The highest average houseold income in Brooklyn has got to be either Brooklyn Heights or Park Slope. The lowest average household income is Brownsville. However these area cover more than one zip code so even then it is not that accurate. You can check by zip code here on city data to get the most accurate description of the rich and poor areas in Brooklyn.

(Very) generally, to the west and to the north are the safest, most expensive areas. South and east are the least desirable ones. Yes, this is a bit of a generalization.

What is the attraction about DUMBO. It is not much of a neighborhood. There is this one short street of businesses and then there is the waterfront. Not much to stroll around. Or maybe there is more to do and I am not that aware about it??

That would depend on what you consider to be rich?

The most expensive homes I've seen in Brooklyn are located in Old Mill Basin and Dyker Heights and the cost range from 2 million to 5 million. Obviously, the household income is in the millions.

Most of the homes I've seen in Park Slope, Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights were below 2 million. But that does not mean the riches people in Brooklyn don't live there.

....and Dumbo is overrated.

....lowest home prices and household income might be Brownsville or East New York.
