New York may be the most expensive place in the United States, but it didn’t come on top in the Forbes most expensive ZIP codes in America 2015 list thanks to the continued wealth and real estate demand of tech professionals in Northern California. Cali ruled several spots on the list this year—with New York not much far behind. In fact, New York still had the most ZIP codes in the top five.
Here are the top five most expensive ZIP codes in America this year.
