WESTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Nine Westchester neighborhoods have made the list of the Top 25 Richest Neighborhoods In the New York City Suburbs.

Stephen Higley, a professor emeritus of urban social geography at the University of Montevallo, ranked the richest neighborhoods in the U.S. based on American Community Survey 2006 - 2010 data, according to a report from Business Insider.

"New York City has long been considered the playground of America's millionaires and billionaires," Business Insider representatives wrote in the report. "But as many of the city's high earners start families and seek more space, they move out to the suburbs surrounding the city."

The entire list, including methodology, can be viewed online at The Higley 1000 website .
