Former Hudson Valley Resident Named Fourth Richest Man In America
The fourth richest man in America may not live here anymore, but he grew up in the Hudson Valley. Forbes Magazine has released their annual list of the 400 richest people in the country and when you're mentioned in the same sentence as Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffet, you're in good company.
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame, grew up in Dobbs Ferry here in the area and slides in at number four behind some seriously wealthy Americans.
- Bill Gates $89 billion
- Jeff Bezos $81.5 billion
- Warren Buffett $78 billion
- Mark Zuckerberg $71 billion
- Larry Ellison $59 billion
President Donald Trumps fortune fell by more than $600 million to just over $3 billion. The lowest entrants on the list have fortunes in the $2 billion range.
The list of the 400 wealthiest Americans is in its 36th year and was compiled using stock prices from September 22nd. The crazy thing is, there were 169 billionaires too poor to make the list of richest Americans. Man, they must have it rough.
