One World Trade Center Won’t Get an Exclusive Zip Code: USPS Officials

» When it opened in 1971, the World Trade Center towers shared a single exclusive ZIP code, 10048. But when it is completed next year, the 104-story 1 World Trade Center building will be relegated to 10007, a zip code that includes dozens of other less notable buildings in its fold. But the World Trade Center isn’t New York City’s only building to have claimed a vanity ZIP code. Since the ZIP—or Zoning Improvement Plan—was instated by the United States Postal Code in 1963 in order to map out a more efficient delivery network, 43 Manhattan buildings—and their owners, of course—have earned codes exclusive to their address, either because of their great size or the number of people who occupy them. After the jump, a comprehensive list of Manhattan’s 43 buildings with exclusive ZIP codes and some of the vital statistics that helped earn each building bragging rights, along with illustrations by Brian Taylor.
