The little town of Westlake, north of Fort Worth, boasts the highest average annual household income ($526,590) among all North Texas neighborhoods. That’s good enough for 12th richest in the nation based on an analysis by geographer Stephen Higley, who’s ranked the top 1,000 based on 2006-2010 Census Bureau data.

The very top of the list is occupied by ritzy suburbs of New York, D.C., Miami, and Los Angeles. Only Chicago has an inner-city neighborhood among the 10 richest. “The Golden Triangle” of Greenwich, Conn., outdoes everybody with a mean household income of $614,242.

Higley defined neighborhoods as groups of contiguous Census block groups with a similar socioeconomic status, in this case a household income of at least $200,000 to be included in the analysis. I’m surprised to see Greenway Parks as the top representative for Dallas. I wonder how exactly Higley defined the boundaries of that neighborhood.
