Are you living among the well-off in one of your state’s wealthiest cities? Or are you — and your neighbors — struggling to get by?

You can find out the answer by scanning GOBankingRates list of the wealthiest cities in each state. According to GOBankingRates:

New York City and San Francisco might come to mind, but big businesses and high rents don’t necessarily translate to wealth for a city’s residents.

The cities that earned a spot on the list of the wealthiest cities in each state have both high median home values and median incomes, according to GOBankingRates.
