ronkonkoma 1456x1204 Secret towns of the super-rich

Ronkonkoma, N.Y.
Who visits: Super-rich jet-setters
Population: 19,082

When the super-rich want to customize their private jets, one of the designers they turn to is Eric Roth at International Jet Interiors in Ronkonkoma, N.Y. Some of the wealthiest celebrities and CEOs in the country have been there in their private jets.

Want to put gold on every fixture in the aircraft? Looking for a toilet seat covered in alligator skin? Roth can make it happen.

"We had one client who was a producer and he said, 'I'm going to go from coast to coast, and what I want to do is be able to edit my films on the fly,' " Roth said. "And that's exactly what we did."

The movie theater in the sky cost about $1 million, but that's really no big deal considering the tens of millions spent just to buy the plane.
