New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states in the country, second only to Maryland. Our most affluent counties are Morris, Somerset and Hunterdon, with Bergen and Monmouth close behind. Our 15 most affluent cities follow, based on the most recent median household income data available. The median income, as of 2013, is listed alongside the town name.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
