New Yorkers take home some of the highest salaries in the world every month.

Every year, Deutsche Bank does a little mapping exercise to determine the most powerful cities and one part of the survey includes take-home pay. These are the top 10 cities where the average resident took home the largest salaries per month (calculated after taxes).

Four American cities made the top 10, while some cities you might expect to rank higher didn’t; one example is London—the city came in just $7 shy.
