Last year, we posted about what the Movoto real-estate blog characterized as the ten most desirable zip codes in the Denver area.
Now, FindTheBest.com has created a zippy list of its own — one that sets out to rank the Denver area's wealthiest zip codes.
Apparently, there's a correlation between wealth and desire, since several of the zip codes appear under both heading. But there are definitely some differences.
Look below to count down the top ten, complete with graphics and data about personal median income and total population.
That's followed by two graphics — a clickable rundown of the top zip codes and a heat map that allows you to click on every neighborhood in the city, including ones that don't appear below.
