Other Bay Area cities in the top 10 include Hillsborough at #4 ($368.9K), Los Altos Hills at #7 ($333.8K), Piedmont at #15  ($298.5K) and Kentfield at #18 ($278.2K).

Bloomberg evaluated inflation-adjusted household income data for all U.S. places with a minimum population of 2,000. Was population a factor in Woodside and Portola Valley not making the list?
