Must read

Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

One of the most popular Zip Codes in America is from Beverly Hills otherwise known as the 90210 area as seen in several shows. The Zip Code means Zone Improvement Plan or also known as the Postal Code system. This system has been used by the US since the early 1960s as a means of identifying a specific location such as a region or city in the world. The code usually involves a series of numbers but has since evolved to include some letters in several countries. The US alone has 42,000 Zip Codes dividing specific locations not just states but more on the actual city and division via streets.

It has been very useful in terms of convenience for international or domestic mails. It is also used to determine the financial progress of a certain postal area hence the improvement plan on the name. They measure how much a certain zone is worth through several means and calculations set forth by several statistics. The richest Zip Code in America right now is 10065 located in New York City, New York.
