Hmmm interesting. I looked through the entire list and most of the richest zip codes are in NY. I was suprised by the percentage in Los Alamos, NM.

Doesn't 1 mil in NY equal something like $100,000 in Kansas City? Of course those are going to be the "richest cities" that doesn't mean they aren't blowing through it on living expenses.

Unless the study takes that into account.


I was exaggerating a tad about the NY to KC ratio

Just wondering how things would differ if they figured living and general expenses into the equation. May not change things for those specific zip codes but surely it would for general areas.

For example: If you have to make $300,000 in NY just to have a standard of living that $50,000 gets you in the midwest. Does it truly matter that you are making $300,000? Once again, Im not sure of ratios, but I think standard of living also includes non measurable things such as paying $2,000 to rent a 300 sq. ft apt where somewhere else you could have a 2500 sq ft house for $2,000 a month.

Well of course NYC is more expensive then Kansas city, look at the difference in lifestyle. Kansas City is a blah city with a blah income payout.
NYC is a spectacular city with a spectacular payout.

Spectacular cities attract spectacular jobs while blah cities attract blah jobs.

People move to one of these cities based on their level of sophistication, and the sophisticated ones will almost always choose NYC over Kansas City

In Middlesex County, Mass 1 in 22 is a millionaire..

I KNEW MA would be in there somewhere. Am I the only one left who isn't rich?
I think so because everyone else has moved out because they are sick of struggling. I choose to remain here and suffer with not being able to afford anything.

It's because it is such a beautiful state and there are gorgeous beaches and the history all around you is incredible. There is culture everywhere and fabulous nature. You can ski in winter and go to the beach in summer, the autumn is awesome, the spring is tender and lovely, the people (those who are left anyway) are great, and it is HOME.

I've been to Kansas City. I live there. I'll say this, they do make the most out of what they have here. When I hear people like Len Dawson and some members of City Hall claim that Kansas City is a "world class city" I have to wonder about their mental health...A decent regional city? Yes. World class city? Absolutely not.

The folks in Johnson County will be disappointed to learn they are not as high up on the food chain as they like to believe they are. I didn't see a single Kansas City area zip code on that list.
