Just in Chicago, I would say old money lives in:
Gold Coast
Maybe Hyde Park/Kenwood

That's it. Even in Lincoln Park there was considerable turnover, decline, and rebirth during the postwar urban deterioration. I'm using continuity as a big factor for old money hoods.

New money hoods:
Streeterville
River North
Ravenswood
And yes Lincoln Park (yuppies are not old money)

In the suburbs, Kenilworth and Lake Forest are old money. I agree Barrington is probably the most new money suburb, but Naperville and even more so Wheaton are not any kind of money suburbs. They are upper middle class not wealthy.
