San Mateo County ranks third of all California counties in median household income, and Burlingame-Hillsborough plays an interesting part in that.
Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks, a website that compiles American Community Survey data, has broken down every city in America by neighborhood and listed them all by average household income, and the results are quite interesting.
The site separates Burlingame and Hillsborough into six sections — the six census tracts that divide the cities.
The wealthiest neighborhood of Burlingame is Easton Addition, which is bordered on its corners by Mercy Center and First Presbyterian Church. The median household income there is $107,639.
In contrast, the poorest area of Burlingame is Oak Grove Manor on the east side of town, where the median household income is $64,679.
Hillsborough, meanwhile, is an incredibly wealthy community where the southern half barely outearns the northern half, with a median household income of $212,596.
