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

    I'm sure the house prices in my subdivision (and the careers of the homeowners) help skew the numbers.
    We're in Pembrooke, off Willows Road, listed as part of the Lexington Park Designated Census Area.

    Did their figures include the income of the local drug dealers?

    Oddly enough, quite a few folks do. My little four acre slice of forested heaven is in Lexington Park. and my kids did just fine at GMHS. As did the kids of quite a few folks I know whose incomes did a good bit to make that average as high as it is. So, yes, quite a few people say that. Lexington Park is far more than the area off of Great Mills Road, you know.

    Let's put it in perspective, The median home value in Bethesda is $829,400..
    Bethesda's median family income in 2011 was $184,606,
    Lexington Park median is nowhere near that..
    Hundreds of city's crush LP on housing prices and incomes.

    Maybe a per capita thing?

    That's what I would think, everyone that is employed their was included in the numbers.
    Even if they head north on 235 & Rt4 at 5:01pm.

    That's what it sounds like to me.

    To determine the richest cities in America, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data from the U.S. Census Bureauís 2016 American Community Survey. We identified the 25 U.S. metropolitan statistical areas with the highest median household incomes. Poverty rates, median home values, and educational attainment also came from the ACS. Unemployment rates are from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and are as of August 2017, the most recent period for which data is available. Cost of living by metro area, or regional price parity, is for 2015 and came from the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

    Pretty sure Lex Park would be higher if Rose's was still open
