Forbes’ annual list of America’s Most Expensive Zip Codes is based on data from Altos Research, a Mountain View, Calif.-based real estate analysis firm.
New York, of course, takes the cake, with neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan and the Upper East Side vying neck-and-neck to be the most expensive. In the No. 3 spot is the Big Apple’s 10013, prime SoHo (plus bits of Little Italy and Chinatown, and the historic Hudson Square neighborhood with its blend of townhomes and lofts.) This ZIP code repeatedly pops up among New York’s most expensive thanks to its relatively narrow range of housing types.
