Fun Fact Friday: 12345

Did you know that the U.S. Postal Zip Code 12345 is assigned to General Electric in Schenectady, NY?

It’s true! That means the population of this zip code is 0, as are all other categories researched for the 2010 Census. However, there are 13 businesses that have postal addresses ending in this zip code, including General Electric. I also found out the elevation is 246 feet above sea level (2-4-6? I love this place!)

In further research, I found a great map that shows the zip code zones of the entire United States (the first 2-3 numbers):

I live in Pullman, WA 99163, and grew up in Cheney, WA 99004; according to this map, all Zip Codes in Washington State start between 990 and 994. My mom lives in Ketchikan, AK 99901 and my older brother and his family live in Rohnert Park, CA 94928. Which Zip Code do you live in?
