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.
