Preppiest Addresses

CULTURE  |  ADDRESS BOOK  |  Preppiest Addresses

There is a saying that goes:

"It is better to have the worst house in the best neighborhood than it is to have the best house in the worst neighborhood".

That being the case, I've been thinking for a long time about putting together a list of the Ritziest and preppiest towns, villages, suburbs and streets for some time... Please note that this will be a work-in-progress and any contributions are, as always, most welcome!
