When I mention to you a list of the richest places to live in the 518 area you probably have an area or two that pops in your mind but based on actual data and facts, are your assumptions true?

New York Upstate broke down the counties in New York and rated them based on which are the richest places to live using median household income and households. Though not in the 518, the richest county overall was Nassau County with the median household income in Upper Brookeville at $250,000+. Some of these surprised me and some of them not so much. Any places you were expecting to see on this list?
