Dallas is Second U.S. City With Most Forbes 400

Share News:

New York City, of course, is first with 53 billionaires who collectively are worth $1.53 trillion. But Forbes Magazine says Dallas came in right behind the Big Apple with 17 of the wealthiest, beating out San Francisco at 16. Of course, a lot of billionaires are scattered along the Peninsula south of San Fran. But then, I saw that Fort Worth had 8 billionaires, which collectively makes 25 of the world’s richest billionaires residents of North Texas.

I’m looking for their homes, all of them, starting with Andy Beal, worth $7 billion, Beal Bank. If you know where he lives, please email Candace@Candysdirt.com.

I’ve written about most of the others, so this ought to be fun.

    Of the 88 Cali billionaires, probably 42-45 reside in the overall San Fran Bay Area when you include the totals from all cities and suburbs. Also, the greater NYC region totals would be higher when you consider Conn, Westchester and Northern NJ.
