Stat-by-State List of Suggested Wealthy Zip Codes:
AL
Mountain Brook, AL 35233

Look at Birmingham, Al  suburb Mountain Brook,  zip codes 35223 and 35213

 

I was looking at your zip code wealth index.  I think you should consider zip code 35213.  This is a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama that is primarily in the city of Mountain Brook.  In many past listings, this zip code has been included.  There are many, many homes with values in excess of $1.0M.  The wealthiest in Birmingham primarily live here and include professionals and business owners.

AR
72401 Jonesboro
CA

La Jolla California - 92093

 

92270 – Rancho Mirage

 

97224 QUALIFIES ACCORDING TO YOUR CRITERIA.

 

91011  La Canada-Flintridge  Is listed in the top 10 most expensive cities in California and in the top 100 in the USA.

It's a well-known wealthy city in the LA area. Average home price over $800,000 and average income over $100,000.

It's very nice because all the homes are very tasteful and quiet.  The classier rich people live here - old money.  Can't believe you left if out.

Just looked at your site while searching for zip codes on line and thought I’d suggest the following zip codes in California:

Thousand Oaks, CA: 91360

Westlake/Westlake Village, CA: 91362

That’s it – have a beautiful day!

 

CO

 

Denver - 80220 and Littleton – 80127

 

Cherry Creek Village - 80110

 

Colorado Springs 80906

 

South of Denver Polo Club Drive area 80209. 

 

Aspen - 81611, 81612

 

Telluride, 81435

 

CT

 

Fairfield, CT

06824 should be added to the list because it is home to some of the largest and luxurious place in the state and my neighborhood averages about $160,000 a year for salaries.

 

06877 – wealthy CT

 

Greenwich, CT – 06830 Riverside, CT - 06878
Both of these zip codes have an average real estate sales price over $1.2
million and an average household income over $175,000.

 

Stamford, CT 06903 has an average income of $287,537. Off the top of my head we are the home of Gene Weilder.  We house General Electric Capital, GTE, Hyperion, XEROX, Pitney Bowes, UBS WARBURG, etc.  The majority of 06903 residents are corporate executives.  The majority of homes are over 1 million dollars and the average acre of land is over $100,000.  We are nesteled between New York city (apprx. 35 minds away) and Hartford (hour away).  I hope you consider 06903

DE

 

Try 19807, it’s considered to be the wealthiest area to live in Delaware.  Many of the homes sell for more than $500,000 and the buyers are executives with MBNA and the DuPont Company.  These executives also live in 19710, 19806 and 19357 and farther into Pennsylvania.

 

FL

 

Naples, Florida should be added to the list because the average property values are well over $500,000.  I am sure that the annual incomes exceed $150,000 as well.  Surrounding zip codes in Naples may even have higher numbers.  Zip code is: Naples, FL 34102

34786   Windermere,fl (near orlando) adv price of home near 800,000  lowest price 250,000 up to over 13 million!

Sea Island area, GA 31561

ME

MO

 

I think as a rule, St. Louis is the kind of town where people KNOW where the money is without having to ask, and outsiders don't really care.

 So maybe this won't be very helpful. Anyway in the interest of civic pride I will submit!

Per this 2003 article: http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/stories/2003/12/22/story8.html

NJ

 

I'd like to suggest the addition of Chatham, NJ 07928

 

08540 Princeton - The Princeton zip code of 08540 is a very exclusive zip code.  Its much more distinguished than 08550 (Princeton Junction) which is currently listed on your website.  I live in Princeton Junction.  I know for a fact that if my home was in 08540 it would be almost double the price.  Check on www.realtor.com to compare.

 

Hello, I checked out your site on wealthy zip codes and thought you may want to look at several more.

Upper Montclair, NJ 07043

Montclair, NJ 07042

Wayne, NJ 07470

 

May I suggest Sparta, NJ in Sussex County.

Average home price: $400,000 (Dec 2004)

 Also Smoke Rise in Passaic County, NJ.

Average home price: $ 600,000 (Dec 2004)

 

NV

 

89413 - Glenbrook, NV

 

Incline Village, Nevada is a high profile area of Lake Tahoe where a large number of wealthy individuals live (retire to) or have second homes. The zip code is 89450. Might suggest it be one of the wealthier zips.

NY
11581, North Woodmere NY
11363 Douglas Manor
Larchmont, NY 10538 - that's a d*** rich zip code
Bedford Hills NY, 10506
Chappaqua NY, 10514
Armonk NY, 10504

“Another thing for people to take into account, in my perhaps not terribly
humble opinion, is age and whether a household is a single person, or a
whole
family...if it is true that the earlier someone adds giving into
their budget, the likelier that number is to grow later on...

In that spirit, 10007, 10013, 10282, 10280 have a lot of young wealthy
people -- bankers, consultants, entertainment industry & media people.  And
insanely high property values.
  These neighborhoods are Tribeca and Battery
Park City in NYC.  10013 is a bit of a dark horse, since there is a large
subsidized housing complex in that zip, which really skews the zip's
averages (10013 actually contains some of the higher end real estate in the
neighborhood).  Another consideration for people using urban zip code
lists.  (also, this is the area for the former World Trade Center, not sure
how that affects the demographic numbers.  In terms of giving, it would be
my perception that people are more willing to give now...)

I found your site through the *NY Times*.  My home and business are in this
zip area, we are trying to grow the business by focusing very strongly on
our neighborhood.  I started to look at the demographic info for
presentation to my partners and staff members...we're a yoga studio, so we
have many of the same goals that you guys do, in terms of increasing the
peace.”

11024 is in great neck new york. just about evryone who lives in 11024(kings point) has either a mercedes, bmw, lexus, or

caddilac escalade. many of the houses are waterfront or gigantic, or waterfront and gigantic. …

OH

Shaker Heights, OH 44120.

Ohio

Indian Hill (Suburb of Cincinnati) Zip Code is 45243.

I think you should check it out. It is one of the wealthiest communities in the Cincinnati area. I am positive that most of the homes in the area are in your range, or well above. As far as household income goes, I would imagine it would fall within your range as well, some of the most prominent figures in Cincinnati reside there. Just a thought!
