As much as you’ve heard great things about the 90210 ZIP Code in Beverly Hills, California, it is NOT the top earning ZIP in the US.  It is in the top 3 though.  The average adjusted gross income for this California ZIP Code is around $3.1 million.  With neighborhoods filled with celebrities and movie stars, that number isn’t too hard to believe.

Greenwich, Connecticut’s 06830 ZIP Code beat Beverly Hills’ high-earning numbers with an average adjusted gross income of $3.3 million.  The city of Greenwich has the highest wealth value in Connecticut.  Wealth value measures the value of residential and commercial real estate and the town’s tax base available to pay for public education.
