Connecticut towns make Bloomberg list of richest places
Fairfield County towns have made yet another list of the richest places in the U.S. This time the list is from Bloomberg.
To compiler their 2020 list of the 50 richest places, Bloomberg "evaluated inflation-adjusted household data for all U.S. locations with a minimum of 2,000 households (as defined by the Census), and ranked them based on average household income. Almost 6,300 communities met the criteria, which includes approximately 75% of total households in the U.S."
Only 16 states were represented in the top 100. California was the most represented with 23 cities and towns making the list. Four Connecticut towns made the top 50 list (well, three depending on how you look at it): Darien, Old Greenwich, Riverside (Greenwich) and Westport.

Numerous tech billionaires have called the town home, including Google’s Eric Schmidt, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Microsoft’s late co-founder Paul Allen."
