Forbes has released its annual list of the 500 most expensive zip codes across country and New York City has even more zip codes in the top 20 than it did last year. With just three in the top 20 last year, that has jumped to eight with five of them making it to the top 10 this year.
Unsurprisingly, the Upper East Side has three of the priciest zip codes in the city. At the top of list, and sitting at the second position nationwide is 10075, which covers the upper East 70s in that neighborhood. The median price for a home in this area is $7.2 million, and this zip code has experienced a massive bump from last year when it was sitting at number 98 on the list.
Numbers 5 and 6 on the list are also from the Upper East Side. The fifth is 10065 which covers the Lenox Hill area. That zip was also on the list last year. The median price here is $6.935 million, and just jumped up 10 places on the list from 15 last year to 5 this year. At sixth place is 10028 which covers most of the East 80s. The median price here is $6.3 million.
↑The city’s most expensive home for sale right now is also located on the Upper East Side. It’s a co-op at 834 Fifth Avenue that’s asking $96 million (that’s down from the $120 million it was asking in April this year).
Moving away from the Upper East Side, the priciest zip code after that is 10012 which includes parts of Greenwich Village, Soho, and Nolita. Last year, this zip topped the list in New York and was at number three nationwide. This year it’s sitting at number seven and the median price has taken a tumble from $7.3 million to $6.278 million.
↑The priciest listing here is still a Puck Building penthouse. This year it’s a just a different one. Penthouse 4 is asking $35 million, compared to penthouse 1 which was asking $66 million last year.
Rounding out the top 10 is 10014 which covers most of the West Village and parts of Greenwich Village. Sitting at number nine on the list nationwide, the median price here is $5.785 million, and this area’s also come up significantly since last year moving from number 31 to its current ranking.
↑The priciest pad in the West Village is the penthouse atop Herzog & de Meuron’s undulating condo at 160 Leroy Street. That was once an $80 million condo that’s now been split up into two with the pricier one asking $48.5 million.
