Fact of the Day: Wealthiest Zip Code in the US

If you had to guess, which zip code do you think is the wealthiest in the United States? If you guessed Alpine, New Jersey, then you are correct.

I had always known that Alpine was rich, but I never thought it was the richest. I had always assumed that somewhere around Silicon Valley would be on the top of the list. Who would have thought that the wealthiest zip code was right in our own back yard?

Anyway, for those curious, rounding out the top 3 wealthiest zip codes are Miami Beach, FL and Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

Though this site is based on (old) Census 2000 data, it's still pretty cool the way you can search using demographics information.
