Hey Reddit! We did some research we thought you might find interesting. Here’s where some major US metropolitan areas draw the line between financial comfort and wealth. What do you think?

Financially Comfortable Wealthy
Boston $1.47 million $2.59 million
Washington, DC $1.34 million $2.75 million
New York City $1.92 million $3.5 million
South Florida (Including Miami) $1.51 million $3.09 million
Chicago $1.47 million $2.56 million
Dallas $1.33 million $2.4 million
Denver $1.12 million $2.41 million
Seattle $1.5 million $3.24 million
SF Bay Area $2.14 million $4.12 million
Los Angeles $1.54 million $2.78 million

Sure, we can all agree that yachts and lambos are signs of wealth, but wealth means something different to everyone, so it’s worth thinking through what wealth really means to you personally. Is wealth simply having no debt? Having time to spend on your hobbies or your family? Being able to retire early? Buying your dream home?

Figuring out what wealth means to you is an important step in the journey to financial health. We created this quiz to help people think through the overall health of their saving strategies, so feel free to take it, share your results, and/or ask questions here!

1.
No Memes

No memes. This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").

2.
No Related Posts

Related posts must be in the comments of the original. Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")

3.
No X-Posts or Reposts

Do not post something that has been submitted to reddit before, even if you were the one who posted it.

4.
Original [OC] Photographs Only

a. All submissions must be original and non-animated photographs.

b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the picture, don't post it.

c. Software glitches/errors, overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.

d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.

5.
No screenshots

No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.

6.
Titles Must Be Exact But Concise Description

a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.

b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!

c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image.
