The Billionaires Of New York: Forbes Releases 'World's Billionaires' List (PHOTOS)

Forbes has created a massive database of the world's billionaires, and one nifty feature allows you to search by state to see just how rich some of your neighbors are. New York state counts 66 billionaires among its residents, a whopping 51 of whom live right here in the Big Apple. Below are the top 15 wealthiest people in the Empire State and their net worths (and if any of these gentlemen are your uncle, let us know! We could really use a new helipad at the HuffPost New York headquarters).

For the full, staggering list, head over to Forbes.
