What would you do with a million dollars? Life-changing as that would be, it still wouldn’t put you anywhere near the Forbes 400, the business and finance magazine’s annual list of the 400 wealthiest Americans. (You’d miss the bottom slot by about $2,099,000,000. Yes, six zeroes at the end.) Despite this, some Westchester locals not only made the list, but are topping it.
Who’s swimming in it? Let’s take a look:
