Chevy Chase, MD
Chevy Chase’s reputation as a wealthy enclave is apparently, well, richly deserved.
A new analysis of the 2008-2012 American Community Survey looked at the towns in each state with the highest median income. Two topped the list with median incomes greater than $250,000: Hidden Hills, CA, a town that several celebrities call home, and Chevy Chase, MD.
Business Insider put together a map showing each state’s toniest town. The map features towns with at least 1,000 residents, and by its measure, Chevy Chase comes out on top. The next toniest suburb after Chevy Chase and Hidden Hills is Short Hills, NJ, where the median income sits at $235,799.
You can check out the map for yourself here:
Hidden Hills has a population of about 1,900, according to the last census; according to the same data, the town of Chevy Chase has a population of 2,900 living on .47 square miles. Unsurprisingly, Hidden Hills is larger, at 1.689 square miles.
On the other end of the spectrum is Gretna, Nebraska, where the median income is $77,818.
