Below is the list of all of the Higley 1000 neighborhoods. If any of my readers would suggest a ‘better’ name for any of the below, I’m listening. Due to the huge number of New York City neighborhoods, I has been broken New York City into Connecticut, Long Island, New Jersey, New York City, and Westchester. Similarly, I have broken up Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Washington DC.
Nine states had no representation in the Higley 1000. The thousandth neighborhood in the Higley 1000 is La Canada in suburban Los Angeles. It is the “poorer” half of La Canada-Flintridge (Fintridge is 439th). La Canada’s mean household income in 2010 was $239,742. Here are the highest income block groups in each of the nine states without representation in the Higley 1000.
- New Hampshire: Bedford Hills Common Area in the town of Bedford outside of Manchester: $234,327
- Wyoming: Jackson Hole; a huge block group of 773 square miles that is north of Jackson, Wyoming: $227,889
- Iowa: a block group in West Des Moines that is centered on 58th St.: $221,168
- New Mexico: the western section of the Tanoa Country Club in Albuquerque: $199,569
- Vermont: The Lake Champlain waterfront in Charlotte, Vermont: $198,813
- Montana: The Yellowstone Country Club in northwestern Billings: $190,015
- North Dakota: Circle Hills Drive along the Red River in southern Grand Forks: $174,072
- Idaho: The Crane Creek Country Club in Boise: $171,500
- Maine: The Woodlands Club in Falmouth, Maine (suburban Portland): $169,258
Considering the list of states, the number of minorities in each neighborhood is miniscule. The exception is New Mexico where the Tanoa Country Club’s western section was 17.5% Latino and 6.9% Asian.
