Richest US City - Washington DC

With the highest median income and a relatively low unemployment rate, Washington DC is now topping the charts of America's wealthiest cities. It has come a long way since the days of seemingly unchecked crime and poverty, and we can only hope its prosperity spreads through the rest of the nation.

The richest city in the United States is currently Washington, D.C., according to a recent report by 24/7 Wall Street. After pouring over US Census data, it was determined that the nation’s capitol has the highest average income in the entire country. The city reportedly has a median household income of $86,680 with only eight percent of its residents living below the poverty line. What’s more, Washington, D.C.’s unemployment rate currently sits at 5.8 percent, which is the 29th lowest in the nation.
