  The richest ZIP code in the US
    is Fisher Island, a 216-acre
    members-only island off the coast of Miami.
  
  
    
    Fisher Island is celebrating its 100th birthday in December
    2019 with a lavish Roaring Twenties-themed gala, The New York
    Post reported.
  
  The average income of the island's
    residents is $2.2 million.
  
  About 700 families live in almost 30 luxury condominium
  buildings on the man-made island, where the median home value is about $3.2
    million.
  To become a member, you must pay a $250,000 initial
    fee and $22,256 in annual dues - and that's on top of
    purchasing a multimillion-dollar condo. 
  
  I took a private shuttle boat to the exclusive island, and I
  was amazed by how pristine everything was, from the perfectly
  manicured landscapes to the private beaches with imported sand
  from the Bahamas.

  Fisher Island, a man-made island off the coast of Miami that
  
  turned 100 years old in 2019, is the richest ZIP code in the
  US, according to Bloomberg.

  The average income of the island's residents is a whopping $2.2
  million. 

  To become a member of the elite Fisher
  Island Club, you must pay a one-time $250,000 equity
  contribution and $22,256 in annual dues. And that's after
  residents have bought one of the condos on the island, which cost
  an average of $3.2 million.
  About 700 families live on Fisher Island in almost 30 luxury
  condominium buildings.

  Residents of the island include real-estate developers,
  high-power litigation attorneys, CEOs, people in the finance
  industry, and some who are simply "old money," according to Dora
  Puig, the top-ranked real estate broker in
  Miami-Dade County by sales volume in 2018

  Members of the Fisher Island Club get access to private beaches
  with sand imported from the Bahamas, a beach club, eight
  restaurants, a golf course, two deep-water marinas, a spa, 18
  tennis courts, and more.

  Earlier this year, I got the chance to take a tour of Fisher
  Island. Here's a look inside the super-exclusive community.
