Harrison, New York is where many of the highest-earning people in the northeast U.S. prefer to live, among a population with an average annual income of $976,200.

Based on a Bloomberg analysis of national tax filings, most of the northeast region’s wealthiest people live in New York’s tri-state area, but not in Manhattan or the city itself. Instead, they prefer the suburbs, with a healthy commute to boot. Of the top 20 zip codes with the top incomes in the region, half were located in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut commuter towns.

Within New York City, the wealthiest people lived in Manhattan, while Brooklyn addresses didn’t make the cut. But, on a nation-wide level, New York’s big earners got blown away compared to what residents in some Florida and California neighborhoods make annually. [Bloomberg]Erin Hudson
