MANHATTAN BEACH & ROLLING HILLS RANK AMONG TOP 10 RICHEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN L.A.

(Excerpt from la.curbed.com)

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.
