The typical American household earned $55,322 in 2016, roughly $4,000 higher than 2009’s median income of $51,425, according to 24/7 Wall St.
In a number of small towns throughout the nation, more than half of households earn nearly three times the national median. This is true in one Westchester community, according to a recent 24/7 Wall St. report.
Rye ranked 30th nationwide, according to this analysis, with a median household income of $162,394 and median home value of $1,107,000.
Also, more than 73 percent of the adults living in Rye are college-educated, with at least a bachelor's degree. Higher education is often a leading indicator of career growth and rising wealth, according to the report.

For comparison purposes, boroughs, census designated places, cities, towns, and villages were considered.
