Huntleigh ranks as richest U.S. community


You want rich? STL's got rich.

According to the "Wall Street Cheat Sheet," our fair burgh has the fairest of them all when it comes to the richest communities in the U.S., based on the annual income of the top five percent of earners in the community.

Huntleigh, conveniently tucked between poor neighbors Ladue and Frontenac, has a median income of about $2.7 million for those five-percenters. This put the community of less than 400 ahead of Mill Neck, N.Y., where the annual residents' income is a paltry $2.5 million.

A decent piece of Huntleigh's pie could be from its most famous denizen, August A. Busch IV. Other citizens include Carnival Cruise Lines topper Arnold Donald and Busch-related kinfolks like the Orthweins and Von Gontards.
