    The city of Boston suffers from the worst income inequality in the United States.

    The top five percent of Americans make over a quarter of a million dollars per year, while the lowest 20 percent of income earners make less than $15,000.

    Mapping income inequality in several cities shows the economic divide splitting the rich and the poor.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Boston.
