San Diego One of Richest Cities in America

America’s Finest City is also one of America’s richest cities.

In a newly released list by Wall St. Cheat Sheet, San Diego was ranked the No. 5 richest city in America.

The ranking looked at cities with a population greater than 500,000 people that have the highest percentage of households earning at least $150,000 per year.

It also provides the salary you would need to live comfortably in each city. In San Diego, that salary is $101, 984. (The Cheat Sheet says the magic income to feel comfortable is $75,000.)

Three other California cities made the top 10 list: San Francisco came in at No. 1 (no surprise there), San Jose sits at No. 2 and Los Angeles was ranked No. 8.

Here’s the full list:

1.) San Francisco
2.) San Jose
3.) Washington, D.C.
4.) Seattle
5.) San Diego
6.) Boston
7.) New York City
8.) Los Angeles
9.) Denver
10.) Austin
