The median income in west downtown Salt Lake City is $34,167 a year, but just a few blocks over its a mere $21,226. Drive up to the very top of the Avenues, and it soars to $188,750.
That data comes from a fascinating new heat map from WNYC, a public radio station in New York City. The map covers the entire U.S. and uses census data to show median household incomes by census tract.
The map is useful for getting a sense of the U.S. as a whole — big metro areas, especially on the coasts, tend to have higher incomes — as well as how different parts of an individual city compare. In Salt Lake City, for example, the Ballpark neighborhood has the lowest median income, at a mere $20,438. The upper Avenues have highest, but the top of Capitol Hill isn't far behind at $105,855.
