A new zip code jumped to the top of Forbes' newest list of the most expensive zip codes in America: 10065.
The zip code covers part of Manhattan's Upper East Side, from 60th to 69th Streets, and from Central Park to the East River. It saw a 384.9 percent median price change from last year in asking prices of homes currently on the market, on which Forbes' list is based.
In fact, three Upper East Side zip codes made it into the top 15 of the list, but the 10065 reigned supreme. The current median asking price for a home in the area is $6.53 million.
This morning we ventured uptown to see what all the fuss was about. We found some pricey real estate listings, celebrity homes, and of course the luxury stores where all of those rich residents shop.
Welcome to the Upper East Side. We started our tour by taking the M15 bus uptown, and got off at 57th Street And First Ave. Shown here is Bridge Tower Place, where a condo is selling for an average of $1,471 per square foot, according to StreetEasy.
On the outskirts of the 10065 zip code is the Roosevelt Island tram service. You can hop on at 60th Street, but it will take you outside the bounds of the country's wealthiest zip code.
On Second Avenue, we found these busy Upper East Siders hurrying to work.
