Hunting Valley is the 17th-richest "Neighborhood" in the United States

With a median household income of $507,214, Hunting Valley is America's 17th-wealthiest community, based on data compiled from the 2010 census in The Higley 1000.

Hunting Valley is located deeply southeast of downtown, fortified to the north, east and south by Gates Mills, Pepper Pike and Moreland Hills, respectively. It is a community of 705 people (though Google suggests that since 2010, the population has grown by four).

In the relevant affluence metrics, Hunting Valley comes in a wee bit poorer than counterparts in Murray Hill-Heathcote (Scarsdale) #14, Round Hill-North Greenwich (Greenwich) #16, but richer than the wealthy burbage of Beverly Park-Beverly Crest (Los Angeles) #18, and McLean Ctry Ests-Glendale (McLean) #19.

Based on 2000 census numbers, Hunting Valley was dubbed the 6th-richest place in the country based on per capita income, but median household income is regarded as a truer portrait of wealth, because it removes servants and "caretakers" from the equation.

(I joke, because I am at once sort of envious of and repulsed by exorbitant wealth, but the homes really are magnificent down there).
