The highest mean incomes in the country are in Manhattan, yet the area code list shows Manhattan with half the income of the Bronx. That doesn't make sense.
I immediately noticed that 212 was a bit lower than what I thought it would be. Also, 718 is not twice as high as 212.

718 $42,551
212 $36,783


I think your referring to 914 which is primarily Westchester County.

Could it be that the 212 area code has a lot of business entities which are not counted toward individual income? Might be a rather small (relativity speaking) cross section of the "population" in 212 whose income is used.

That by the way is a BEWAG (Best Educated Wild A$$ Guess)

I think your on to something. Looking at the American Factfinder, I see that Staten Island actually has a higher median household income than Manhattan does.

I think it also has to do with the tons of starving artists singles and hipsters who cram into tiny apts--generally they are less wealthy than, or rather have less income, than middle class families in the outer boroughs.

Also, a BEWAG.

Area codes often overlay each other. This is true for most major cities. This is more a function of when one receives their number than it is about specific geography. In fact, I know many people whose home number has a different area code than their cell number that's associated with the exact same city (305 & 786, 212 and 917, etc...)

Just like I thought. 585(Rochester area), has the highest average income out of the Upstate NY area codes. Very underrated area, IM and places like Pittsford, Brighton, along with other Eastern suburbs have the bulk of the higher incomes. Pottsford might be the most affluent community/area in Upstate NY.
