Well, If It's Good Enough for the Jonas Brothers

Big high-five for Westlake this morning: That tiny town in Tarrant (and Denton) County, once the playground of Nelson Bunker Hunt, has been named by Forbes as The Most Affluent Neighborhood in America, based upon the recently released U.S. Census Bureau Community Survey. The annual median income in Westlake is around $250,000, and it probably doesn't hurt that the community in question includes among its few hundred residents Texas Rangers co-owner Chuck Greenberg, a few major-leaguers and pro golfers and Los Bros Jo, right, Mayor (and President of Westlake Academy) Laura Wheat: "It's not so much of a surprise, since we are a very small town and we have a number of highly paid professional athletes who live here, CEOs of major corporations, members of a popular band of brothers." Methinks somebody's gold-level status just got upgraded to platinum.

Dallas ISD has eight high schools on the Newsweek Top High Schools in America list and all of them rank higher than Southlake.

Oh my, there's a street named "Westlake". Don't tell me some folks out in the provinces have named a town after it!

I assume each JoBro under the same roof. they split up it could bring that median down. doubtful, as they'll concurrently control more of the universe.

I'm kinda shocked the median isn't higher. With 7000 residents, and multiple million to billionaires, I'm more interested at the people whose medians are 100k or less and where they live.

They know how a median is calculated, right?

Pretty exclusive club indeed, being on the same list as Irving and Mesquite.

yea, but the same thing is true in Highland Park. Small town with lots of concentrated wealth. Can anyone imagine living in HP with a household income lower than $500k, let alone the official stat closer to $200k?The people with those lower incomes still have incredibly high net worth. It's more of a testament to the ability to hide income when you are wealthy.
