In case you care (via Curbed Chicago):
Thanks to statistician and data enthusiast Stephen R. Higley, who has pored over heaps of census data from the 2010 United States Census, we now have a definitive breakdown of which Chicago neighborhoods are the wealthiest in all of the city. Of course, if you've lived in the Windy City for more than a couple of years, you could probably guess the top ten, but today we bring you the list that has census data backing it. Many of the wealthiest communities in the greater metro area fall outside of city limits, but we are only focusing on Chicago neighborhoods (sorry suburban readers). So without further adieu, here are Chicago's ten richest neighborhoods by mean household income.
