The tiny New Jersey town ranked No. 1 with a median price of $4.14 million for one of its luxurious mansions.

The affluent borough, with a median household income of $128,287, topped Forbes’ list despite housing prices falling 23 percent over the past year.

Notable residents of Alpine include comedians Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, and Joe Piscopo, pop singer Brittany Spears, hip-hop artist Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, and former president of Goya Foods Joseph Unanue.

The West Village in Manhattan (pictured above) ranked third on the list, with a median housing price of $3.5 million, just behind No. 2 Atherton, Calif., which is part of the greater San Francisco area (below).

All the top 10 zip codes were found in California, New Jersey or New York City.
