Walk down the street in New York and you’re virtually guaranteed to see several millionaires.

That’s because more than 1 in every 25 New Yorkers is a millionaire, according to a study released Tuesday.

The Big Apple ranks fourth in a listing of the top 20 global cities based on the portion of their populations whose net worth, excluding primary residence, tops $1 million.

Altogether, 4.63% of New Yorkers, or 389,100 people, are millionaires, according to the analysis by Spear’s magazine and consulting firm WealthInsight.

“New York has long been the bastion of wealth not only in America, but the world,” said Oliver Williams, an analyst at WealthInsight. “It has the second largest millionaire and largest billionaire population of any global city.”

Monaco, Zurich and Geneva claimed the first three spots. Nearly 3 in 10 people in Monaco are millionaires.

Houston at No. 18 and San Francisco at No. 19 were the only other U.S. cities to make the list. In each city, a bit more than 2% of residents are millionaires.

Not surprisingly, most of the highest-ranked cities are banking and financial centers, including Frankfurt (No. 5) and London (No. 6).

Genius, formerly known as RapGenius, is a site that explains the complex meanings behind the lyrics in rap songs. The site then went on to add RockGenius to its family of sites. Now after a site relaunch, Dan Gilbert has written a blog where he explains why he chose to invest $40 million with the company. Check out an excerpt below:

Since its debut in 2009, Rap Genius has caught on in a big way among artists and the public, allowing everyone to dive into the lyrics of hip-hop music to find a deeper and better understanding of the creators’ original intent. In addition, the burgeoning company has entered into licensing partnerships with all of the major music publishers, as well as dozens of smaller ones.

Friday, Rap Genius took their concept to a completely new level by re-launching the platform as ‘Genius’ (genius.com). With a new name and a broader scope, Genius takes a huge step toward fulfilling its mission to crowdsource the annotation of ALL TEXT on the internet (that’s right—the entire web).
