According to GOBankingRates, "When you think of the richest locations in the U.S., places like San Francisco, New York and Beverly Hills might come to mind. But prosperity and affluence aren't only thriving among the glitz and glamour of big cities. Instead, pockets of wealth can be found in the nation's quieter communities and small towns. In this study, GOBankingRates analyzed U.S. Census Bureau income data in locations in every state with 500 to 15,000 households to determine the wealthiest small towns in America."

According to Wikipedia, "Lyons is an unincorporated community and census-designated place located within Bernards Township, in Somerset County." Personally, I have not been to Lyons, so I haven't had a chance to see this town myself.
