Default Austin Old Money

Old Money:

Pemberton Heights—Small old money enclave between UT and Tarrytown
Tarrytown—Old money neighborhood that is on a bluff over Lake Austin.
Old Enfield—Progressive’s that hate the homeless (and who can blame them)
Hyde Park—Mostly Progressive Professors from UT bitching about the climate and Trump
Travis Heights—Progressives Lesbian’s who love Hillary and hate the homeless that are everywhere

New Money:

West Lake Hills— The tech Billionaire’s
Rollingwood— Ditto
Rob Roy—Ditto
Lost Creek—Ditto
All these are in the Hills in West Austin.

Really Austin only has new money, it’s the opposite of Houston, Dallas and San Antonio

Default Houston Old Money

Old Money

River Oaks— The ultimate old money neighborhood, it’s the richest neighborhood in Texas. This is where ALL the billionaires live, like Houston Bel Air and Beverly Hills rolled into one.
Remington/Broad Oaks/Southhampton—Rice University area of old money
Tanglewood—Old money near The Galleria
Memorial—Massive area of mansions and estates, like Preston Hollow in a Pine Forest, a little like parts of Buckhead
West University/Bellaire—this is yuppie ville, very pretentious but not that impressive.

New Money

The Woodlands—Massive development with some wealthy areas
Sugar Land—Ditto, but with more minorities
Clear Lake/Kemah—Ditto

Shout out to Galveston that has tons of Old Money Mansions.

Really Houston only cares about Old Money

For new money, think athletes, Kardashians, lottery winners, guy who grew up poor but built a company up, etc.

Some examples:

Houston: River Oaks for Old Money, New Money in the Villages and far out suburbs like the Woodlands

Los Angeles: Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, Bel Air for Old Money, Calabassas for New Money.

Minneapolis: Lake of the Isles for Old Money, also some places around Lake Minnetonka, For New Money, maybe North Oaks.

How about other cities?
the old money typically live in places like Old Midland here in Midland, Texas.

University Park—Along with Highland Park, they form an area known as The Park Cities. The Volk Estates area is very wealthy.
Turtle Creek—Wealthy High Rise Condos along Turtle Creek with all the great views of downtown, most 5 star P
hotels and restaurants in this rich area.
Preston Hollow—Massive Mansions on large estates, this is what you think of when you think “Dallas”
Lakewood—Large estates along White Rock Lake.
Swiss Avenue—Original old money enclave, think KC Country Club area, now kinda spotty

New Money:

Plano—huge suburb with wealthy areas
Frisco—suburb with wealthy areas

Really Dallas only cares about old money.....
I live in the Dallas area and that is what I've noticed too. I live in an apartment building in Richardson, TX and the property manager there told me a couple of days ago that one of my neighbors from Pakistan has 4 million dollars in the bank. He also told me that the owner of the building, who is a 70 yr old Chinese guy, is a billionaire.

Fun to see an old thread I started get bumped. What area are you in where there is no old money?
