HomeSnacks.com has released an updated list of the richest cities in Pennsylvania. “You either have to own Dunder-Mifflin, Hershey’s Chocolate, or be a descendant of President James Buchanan, to live in our top ten richest cities in Pennsylvania for 2023,” they say in the article. Funny stuff.
In order to live comfortably in the cities that HomeSnacks.com deems are among the richest in Pennsylvania, you have to make an average of $90,000 a year. In many of these cities, the median income is much greatest. In addition, HomeSnacks.com adds, “Monetary wealth does make a city rich, but there are cities on our list that are both rich in the dollar as well as rich in amenities. Cities on our list like Perkasie provide the backdrop for fancy wine tasting, and cities like Camp Hill provide multiple outlets for the one activity that rich people like to do most: head to the spa.”
