The wealthiest city in America is Palo Alto, Calif., NerdWallet's survey found. In the Northeast, Newton, Mass., a suburb west of Boston, topped the list.

NerdWallet, a personal finance website, looked at about 500 cities with populations greater than 65,000 and analyzed median income, home values, credit limits and percentage of homes without mortgages.

And, Newton’s median home value was $886,400, $200,000 more than Cambridge, Mass., which had the second-highest in the Northeast, at $649,000, said NerdWallet.
