The Most Affluent Zip Codes in New York

With its gritty glamor and wealth of iconic culture, living the high life in New York City can come at price.

This fact is born out by the research showing New York's Zip Codes are among America's most affluent.

A significant number of the priciest Zip Codes are found in and around banking center Manhattan, while several others are found in the quieter areas of the countryside.

Previous research conducted by Zillow found New York's most expensive average property prices were found in a Sagaponack Zip Code, where the mean cost of a home was almost $5.5 million.

The current data was obtained via the IRS' 2018 figures to obtain a mean adjusted gross income in each New York Zip Code.

From this, Newsweek can reveal the 15 most affluent Zip Codes in New York State.
