RealtyHop, a data-driven real estate platform, recently released its annual list of the top 100 most expensive zip codes in the United States, and it comes as no surprise that New York City neighborhoods dominate the list. The study analyzed more than 25,000 zip codes across the country, taking into account factors such as median home prices, price per square foot, and the number of homes sold in each area.
Here are some of the most expensive zip codes in New York City according to the RealtyHop report:
- 10013 (Tribeca): With a median home price of $4.7 million, 10013 in Tribeca is the most expensive zip code in New York City and the second-most expensive in the country. Known for its cobblestone streets, luxury lofts, and high-end restaurants, Tribeca has long been a popular neighborhood for the city’s elite.
- 10007 (Battery Park City): Located on the southern tip of Manhattan, 10007 has a median home price of $4.5 million. Battery Park City is a modern development built on landfill in the 1970s, and it’s known for its high-rise condos, waterfront parks, and stunning views of the Hudson River.
- 10065 (Upper East Side): The 10065 zip code, located on the Upper East Side, has a median home price of $4.4 million. The area is home to some of the city’s most prestigious schools, including the Dalton School and the Spence School, and features a mix of luxury co-ops and townhouses.
- 10021 (Upper East Side): Another Upper East Side zip code, 10021, has a median home price of $4.3 million. The area is known for its upscale shops, world-class museums, and elegant pre-war buildings.
- 10075 (Upper East Side): With a median home price of $4.2 million, 10075 in the Upper East Side rounds out the top five most expensive zip codes in New York City. The area is home to several prestigious private schools and features a mix of luxury condos, co-ops, and townhouses.
Other New York City neighborhoods that made the list include the West Village, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and Chelsea. While these neighborhoods are certainly pricey, they also offer some of the most coveted real estate in the country, with stunning views, historic architecture, and access to some of the city’s best restaurants, shops, and cultural institutions.
It’s worth noting, however, that the high cost of living in these areas can come with some drawbacks, such as limited space, high property taxes, and a competitive real estate market. Still, for those who can afford it, these zip codes offer a rarefied lifestyle that’s hard to beat.
