The number of households bringing in more than $200,000 annually has shot up significantly in many New Jersey towns over the past 10 years.

The sports betting community platform OLBG has analyzed U.S. Census data to determine which municipalities in the Garden State have the greatest number of homes with incomes of more than $200,000.

According to the site, Elizabeth recorded the highest percentage increase of these high earners since 2013 (630%). The city's total household count increased 15% over that time. The increase was higher than 400% in Passaic and East Orange.

Note: Other municipalities in New Jersey may have a greater share of homes earning more than $200,000, but this study is reporting on the absolute number of homes earning that much.

An amazing NJ restaurant in a historic building

If you've never been to Lambertville, you're really missing out on a true gem of a town in New Jersey.

And if you've never been to Lambertville Station you're missing out on a really great restaurant in a truly historic building.

It's housed in the building that acted as the Lambertville train station dating back to 1867.

The building and the town went through its tough times, but for the last 40 years, Lambertville Station has been serving diners in a casual upscale atmosphere with excellent food.

Last year a prominent restaurant group called Genesis Hospitality took over the historic dining spot and they've continued the excellence that has made this place a must-go-to spot anytime you're in town.

The menu consists of varied contemporary American favorites with plenty of options.

The food and the service are excellent and are a good fit for couples, families, and special occasions.

There is a first-class Inn on the property on the river across the parking lot if you want to stay over.
