Inside the homes of the second richest town in America

James Leggate

Located just 30 miles outside of New York City, the tony enclave of Scarsdale is the richest town on the East Coast and the second richest town in America, according to Bloomberg 2019 Richest Places report.

Scarsdale's average household income is an astonishing $417,335, according to Bloomberg. Famous neighbors include American billionaire investor Daniel Och and hedge fund honcho David Siegel, according to Westchester Magazine. While many homeowners cite the award-winning schools as the main draw to the leafy suburb, the homes themselves are fit for a king.

Here’s a look behind the hedges of Scarsdale.
