  • Isn’t it a bit misleading to say “5 of the most expensive zip codes” are in Houston?

    5 out of 500. Houston isn’t even mentioned in the article. Our wealthiest zip code is #153. I say boo. Boo to the article and boo to the link title.

  • That piece by Marín is growing on me. One can argue all day long about its aesthetics or the moral consequences of displaying it in public, but the sculptor’s mastery of his skill deserves universal admiration (as do his slightly Dalíesque expressions in photographs).

  • Not misleading at all. There are over 40,000 zip codes in the U.S. That puts number 153 pretty close to the top.

  • jgriff, I’m with Montrose1100 on this one…I read the article and there was no mention of Houston. THe title gave me the impression that Houston was a focus of it when it was really California and New York. The only thing it did is confirm that I will not be moving to West U or Bellaire any time soon with a median home price north of $1M.

  • Couldn’t they have found a model in a bit better shape to straddle that ball. Just sayin. And yeah, the zip code article was a yawner
