FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Ten neighborhoods in four towns in Fairfield County have made the list of Top 25 Richest Neighborhoods In the New York City Suburbs -- including one in Greenwich that is the richest suburb in the country.

Stephen Higley, a professor emeritus of urban social geography at the University of Montevallo, ranked the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. based on American Community Survey 2006-10 data, according to a report from Business Insider.

"New York City has long been considered the playground of America's millionaires and billionaires," Business Insider wrote in the report. "But as many of the city's high earners start families and seek more space, they move out to the suburbs surrounding the city."

The entire list, including methodology, can be viewed online at The Higley 1000 website.

Clearly the out of control crime is what prevented Norwalk making the list. This is due to the Norwalk police department being a complete and total failure.

Yes, I can think of a couple of words that could be put together to read "fanked" especially when those Mcmansions have replaced older housing stock such as Victorian farm houses, turn-of-the -century Colonials, 1920's stone estates, or even our moderns etc. Fanked indeed!

Fanked?
