WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- In order to be one of the top 1 percent in earnings in the United States, you need to make $385,000 per year. In New York, you need to make significantly more, according to Vox.

To crack New York's wealthiest 1 percent, a resident would have to clear $506,000 annually, one of the highest figures in the nation, Vox reported. 

In addition, the Empire State also has the largest income disparity, with the top 1 percent earning 48.4 times the average salary of a run-of-the-mill 99 percenter. 

The easiest state to crack the cultural elite? Arkansas, where $228,000 per year grants admission into the top 1 percent.

Here's how much you would have to earn to be in the top 1 percent in New York's neighboring states:

  • Connecticut: $678,000
  • New Jersey: $539,000
  • Massachusetts: $532,000
  • Rhode Island: $315,000
  • Vermont: $299,000
