Is New York City a High Net Worth Celebrity Factory?

Most high net worth celebrities were born in the New York Area.

New York City, aka ‘The Big Apple’, is home to many high net worth celebrities. Even more so than southern California. In the tri-state area, I counted 19 high net worth celebrities born in the area for a combined net worth of $3.3 billion. Compare this with the Southern California area where I counted 14 celebrities born in the area with a total net worth of a little over $2.5 billion.

To come to these conclusions, I put together a list of some of the most influential celebrities who were born in the United States, and subsequently tracked down their place of birth along with what type of celebrity,  and his or her net worth. Then I placed all of this information on an interactive map and within a few minutes came to these conclusions. It is embedded below for you to check out for yourself.
