Top 25 U.S. Cities by Household Income

The following data was extracted from a MarketWatch news item and modified to indicate city population.  Detroit at the bottom of the list was no surprise but Philadelphia and Memphis coming in at 23rd and 24th place is a surprise.  The vlaue of this information is the indicator of where you don’t want to live.  You might not be able to live in San Francisco or San Jose but living nearby will provide the benefits that come with a wealthier community such as hopitals, doctors, arts, and entertainment.

I personally know there are lower cost housing opportunities in San Jose as well as Los Angeles.
