Not expensive enough for you?
Coldwell Banker lists another 94123 gem at 2090 Vallejo Street for a mere $15,250,000 – Peanuts, really, when you consider such accoutrements as a butler’s pantry and an “elegant” library. The property also boasts 4+ fireplaces. (What does the "+" mean, anyway?)
At prices like these, how is it possible that a San Francisco zip code made it to only 55 on the Top 100 list? Well, as you probably guessed, 90210 beat SF, landing at #40. Jim and Cindy Walsh might roll over in their syndicated graves having been beat out by a few towns in New Jersey, of all places. In fact, the #1 most expensive zip code is in Alpine, NJ, famous for such hip-hop residents as P. Diddy, Chingy, Lil’ Kim, and Russell Simmons (according to Wikipedia).
Other San Francisco zips to make the Top 100 list? None. Believe it or not, 94114 (Castro) and 94118 (Inner Richmond) missed the cutoff, coming in at a tie for #103. Tough luck. Our wealthy neighbors in St. Francis Wood (94127) didn’t even make it, coming in at #109. Oh well.
With all the crazy mortgage crap that’s going on around the globe, we can only hope that more of our zip codes will make it onto the top 100 next year – and far fewer of our SFist friends will ever be able to afford a home in the greatest city in the world.
