If you guessed the Upper East Side's 10021, you'd be wrong. The most expensive zip is Tribeca's 10013. If you live in 10007 or 10013 (SoHo), you're pretty close.
Meanwhile, the brokerage Citi Habitats reported that Tribeca and Soho are also the most expensive neighborhoods in which to rent (average rent: $3,718 a month) followed closely by Chelsea ($3,041) and the West Village. The Upper East and Upper West Sides are bargains by comparison, with average rents near $2,500.Read about "the Death (and the Idea of) the Upper East Side" it in New York Magazine.
