In this chapter, I document the wealth and income disparities of contemporary US cities, focusing specifically on how why incomes are higher in cities than elsewhere, the mechanisms that generate inequalities of income and wealth, and the factors that situate poverty nearby affluence. I argue not that cities generate such inequalities but they exacerbate and concentrate them geographically. Numerous examples of these conditions and mechanisms are presented.
