LARGEST U.S. CITIES TO HAVE ONLY ONE ZIP CODE

Most U.S. cities with at least 50,000 people have more than one zip code. However, these are the largest cities with only one zip code. Most of these cities are inner suburbs in major metropolitan areas in large states (large states generally have fewer "zip codes per capita"). Except for Chino Hills and Union City, California and Taylor, Michigan, these locations have well below-normal per capita incomes (with some being only about half the national average).

Only incorporated cities are listed; unincorporated towns are sometimes even more "post-office-sparse."
