1 in 25 New Yorkers is a millionaire, apparently

By Ned Hepburn

According to consulting firm WealthInsight (cool name!) 1 in every 25 New Yorkers is a millionaire. This may come as a surprise to anyone who has taken the F train during rush hour, or anyone that has ever scraped together change to get a bagel, but it's apparently true. Even though New York City isn't the most expensive place to live in the world, it comes 4th in it's count of millionaires. The results were published in very-rich-person magazine Spear's, and it also reveals that almost a third of the population of Monaco is a millionaire. So there's that information if you're currently looking to hook up with anyone who is, shall we say, wallet-ly inclined. Can't afford a ticket? Stay in NYC and join a millionaire dating site. Hey, we all gotta start somewhere. 

We commoners most likely don't see most of these millionaires; they're most likely in their toney apartments smearing caviar all over eachother's naked, rich bodies. Or figuring out ways to hoard even more filthy lucre. But now that it's apparently true that you can most likely throw a rock and hit a millionaire in NYC, people are going to start throwing a lot more rocks.
