Interesting question, so I looked it up. The largest population of boomers in NYC (19,450), which is also the largest boomer population of any zip code in the US, lives in Brooklyn zip code 11234 (Bergen Beach, Mills Basin, Flatlands - btw, I don't have any idea where those are).

Among the top 14 boomer zip codes in NYC, 8 are in Brooklyn, 4 in Queens, and 2 in Manhattan.

The ones in Manhattan are the Upper West Side (3rd largest population of boomers both in NYC and in the US), and Lower East Side/Chinatown (14th largest boomer population in NYC, and the 20th largest in the US).

If I had to guess, 11414, 11379, 11694, and 11697 in Queens have the highest in the borough.

Do you mind me asking if it's because you'd like to stay far away from those zip codes?

While I'd be also interested why the OP asked, it is not clear why anyone would want to stay away from those zip codes. Boomers are not the elderly, the oldest of them are 73-74 this year, the youngest 55-56, ie, about half of the generation is still referred to as middle-aged (people between 75 and 92 are elderly, but they are the Silent Generation. Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger are actually not Boomers, they are older). Those boomers who still work, particularly the older half of them, largely do so because they are on the top of their trade; those who retired are the most self-dependent generation of seniors in history (and possibly future, the way things are going :-). Where boomers live, it is generally good to live, and their numbers in Brooklyn point to the fact that they were the main carriers of recent prosperity in Brooklyn (rather than the much ridiculed poor hipsters, who are generally blamed for "gentrification", of which they aren't financially capable to start with :-). No worries, to paraphrase The Who, the grandparents are alright :-).

My Generation ( Millenials ) are a bunch of spoiled crybaby idiots who are easily manipulated. I'm terrified of when they are in charge of this country.
