(Excerpt from

The Higley1000 uses information from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey 2006-2010, examines census tract subdivisions, and pinpoints the nation's most affluent neighborhoods according to their mean household incomes. Fun! The most recent results (via The Atlantic Cities) reveal that, of the top 1,000 wealthiest 'hoods, a whopping 55 of them are in LA County. We've gone and narrowed it down even further, picking out the top 10 in LA County. Some of the usual suspects, like Beverly Hills (also distinguished as the most unequal city in California), obviously made the cut but there are quite a few surprises (and curious absences) on the list.
Holmby Hills and Malibu aren't in the top 10. >>
The top 10 richest neighborhoods in Los Angeles County, with their mean household income:

1. Beverly Park: ($502,440)
2. The Hill Section of Manhattan Beach: ($399,820)
3. Beverly Hills (the 90120 section): ($395,734)
4. Hidden Hills: ($383,731)
5. Rolling Hills: ($373,524)
6. Bel-Air Estates: ($355,007)
7. Upper Laurel Canyon: ($332,037)
