Houston 77010, home of the rich
For as long as I’ve lived in Houston, I’ve known that the “rich” neighborhood in the city is River Oaks. It turns out that this assumption was incorrect.
It turns out that the zip code 77010 is the wealthiest in the city… and the second wealthiest in the country. This is the area code that includes Discovery Green park.
I guess it makes sense, Have you seen the high-rise living that’s been built in that area? I don’t know the price tag, but I imagine it costs a pretty penny to live there.
And now you know where the richpeople live in Houston.
