Unless you started your own company, played the lotto, or found a really rare antique in your attic, you’re probably not calling one of the wealthiest zip codes in Massachusetts home.

Sure, Beverly Hills may own the most famous zip code in America, but unlike two Bay State municipalities, the California town did not crack the list of the top-20 wealthiest spots in the country.

According to data released by Bloomberg, the average adjusted gross income in Weston, Massachusetts, is a staggering $860,400 annually, making the suburb the ninth-richest place in the nation. And the Financial District and waterfront aren’t far behind. On average, residents who reside in Boston’s 02110 zip code make $711,900 a year, the 12th-highest average in the country.

Fisher Island, which is just off the coast of Miami, tops the list, according to Bloomberg. Residents there rake in an average of over $2.5 million each year. Atherton, California; Palm Beach, Florida; Palo Alto, California; Harrison, New York; Gladwyne, Pennsylvania; the Century City neighborhood of Los Angeles; and Kenilworth, Illinois, also outpaced Weston in Bloomberg’s analysis.

The second-wealthiest zip code in Boston, according to Bloomberg, is 02108, which encompasses the Common and Beacon Hill. The neighborhood’s average annual income of $541,700 earns it the title of 18th-wealthiest place in the northeast and 37th-richest spot nationwide. Wellesley also snuck into the top-20 municipalities in the region; the picturesque enclave boasts an average annual income of $539,900, making it the 19th-richest spot in the northeast, and the 38th-wealthiest nationwide.
