    Lexington Park named one of the richest cities in America

    Lexington Park, MD – Lexington Park is once again being named one of the richest cities in America.

    The latest determination was made by 24/7 Wall St. The financial news and opinion company ranked Lexington Park as number 10 on the list of the richest cities in the country. The report says Lexington Park has an average annual household income of $78,195 and a median home a value of $307,900.

    The report also concluded Lexington Park’s unemployment level of 3.8 percent was below the national average of 4.4 percent.

    Incomes in the United States are at one the highest levels ever recorded with a national average of $59,039 a year.

    The richest cities were ranked based on a number of factors including household incomes, home values, cost of living and unemployment rates.

    Here’s the list of the top ten Richest cities in America:

    1. San Jose, CA
    2. San Francisco, CA
    3. Washington, DC
    4. Bridgeport, CT
    5. Boston, MA
    6. Anchorage, AK
    7. Honolulu, HI
    8. Oxnard, CA
    9. Seattle, WA
    10. Lexington Park, MD

    So I looked at the actual article on "24/7 Wall St." and it specifies "California-Lexington Park" for the list. Hmm...

    If anyone believes any of these click-bait stories they should commit suicide (successfully).
    I think I've seen Baltimore listed as one of the safest cities in the US. What was it the other day, the top whatever and 50 percent of the towns named were in one state.
    If you need any proof that this story in particular is bull dung, take a look at the Elementary Schools that serve the area. I believe at least 2 of the 5 are Title 1 schools - I think that's the program, the other three have enough title 1 students to qualify for grants.

    EVER.

    I don't know how they come up with these silly results, but there's no way in hell that Lex Park is one of the richest cities in American. No way in hell. Anyone who actually lives there or is familiar with it knows this.

    There are lot's of nice houses that technically are in Lexington Park, though I am sure they send their kids to private schools. All of the properties down the road behind Chipotle come to mind (probably 500k+ homes on average).

    Somehow the property taxes on those homes isn't enough to keep the schools from being bottom of the barrel though.

    Actually I moved from Jax, FL to SOMD late last century. My son's schooling was exponentially better even though he attended GMHS. Depends on where you've come from. In the big picture it's a far cry from anything found in Baltimore county. Compared to the other county high schools, sure it appear scary.

    No way does Anchorage, AK belong on the list either. It's not some gleaming metropolis more like average small city with many run down parts of town.
