San Mateo County ranks third of all California counties in median household income, and Millbrae plays an interesting part in that.
Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks, a website that compiles American Community Survey data, has broken down every city in America by neighborhood and listed them all by average household income, and the results are quite interesting.
The site separates Millbrae into six sections — the six census tracts that divide the cities.
The wealthiest neighborhood of Millbrae is the area that includes Schultz Park and Hillcrest Boulevard, where the median household income is $105,750.
In contrast, the poorest area of the city is the northeast side of town along El Camino Real, including Lomita Park Elementary School, where the median household income is $59,028.
Middle class in California ranges between $53,000 to $67,000 according to the survey.
