Businessweek.com lists 50 richest zip codes for 2011

 

The #1 richest zip code: 33480

According to the article, “the area’s population change since 2000 was also taken into consideration, though only as a minor factor, and no areas with a decrease in number of households, where wealth might become less concentrated, were included. The results include many places around New York, Washington, D.C., and Silicon Valley. As Gadberry’s survey mainly captured data on primary residences, many affluent second-home markets, such as the Hamptons on Long Island and Aspen, Colo., did not make the top 50. Also, neighborhoods in such urban areas as Manhattan and San Francisco that have pockets of extreme wealth did not make the list because they have a greater diversity of income earners.”
