The Hudson Valley has some serious cash, and now we know how much.
If you live in the Hudson Valley, you know that it's expensive to live here. And for you to afford an expensive region, you need to make a lot of money. Obviously, some areas have a higher cost of living than others. For instance, Westchester is a very expensive county to live in. One town in Westchester is actually the second richest in the U.S. based on average annual household income.
