New Data Affirms Westport Among Top U.S Affluent Places

New U.S. Census data out today shows that Westport is the 10th most affluent U.S. neighborhood community, second to only Darien in the state, which is listed as No. 2, according to an analysis by Forbes magazine.

Forbes, in a snapshot of the affluent places, described Westport as a “bohemian bourgeois village with a 60-minute commute to Manhattan.”

Forbes said for communities such as Westport and Darien that depend on New York’s financial industry, town-center commerce and municipality taxes on pricey homes, the impact of the current economic downturn is likely to be more pronounced than for other wealthy neighborhoods.

To determine its list of America’s most affluent neighborhoods, Forbes looked at average median household income estimates—in communities with populations between 20,000 and 64,999—from 2005 to 2007, provided in the newly released U.S. Census American Community Survey (ACS).
