Take a longer and wider view. Globally and through history the money lives near the core (because they can afford to) and the less affluent live out in the burbs because it's all they can afford. Things went wonky in North America after the war because of huge subsidies for highways, roads, mortgage guarantees, interest write offs so that lots of people were incented to move out to the burbs but that is probably going to be a temporary blip in the long run of history. It's already changing, many cities in North America are once again wealthier in the core and poverty is being suburbanized, we can expect that to continue.
