Forbes just released their annual list of “America’s most expensive zip codes” and, wouldn’t you know it New York City slide into three different spots in the top 20 zip codes.  What might not be surprising is that Sagaponack, NY took the number two spot behind Atherton, CA taking the cake!  Lets not create a East Coast vs. West Coast battle here…what’s more important to focus on is whether or not you think you can name the three NYC zip codes at the top of the list?  Without further ado, here are the top three NYC zip codes:

#3 | 10012 – Greenwich Village, Soho, Nolita
This zip code boasts a median sale price of $7,302,117 with 130 average days on the market and a mere 91 properties for sale.

#4 | 10013 – Lower East Side, Soho, Tribeca
This zip covers an interesting mix of neighborhoods with a median sale price of $6,076,018 (driven by Tribeca), with 219 average days on the market and a mere 109 properties for sale.

#15 | 10065 – Upper East Side
This zip covers 59th to 69th Streets on the Upper East Side, between Fifth Avenue and the East River.  It boasts a median sale price of $4,406,262, the largest of the three inventories with 160 properties for sale and 106 average days on the market.

Other states’ neighborhoods that made it to the top 20 include, in order from most expensive to least (if we could even use that word): Miami Beach (NY’s 6th borough), Woodside, Aspen, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.  If you thought you had it tough living in NYC, think again!
