Wonkblog: The age of housing in every zip code in the U.S.


Fascinating, if only because it shows (especially in the specific examples) the nature of housing demand and development. No coincidence that the most expensive cities are not only in high demand, but also geographically constrained.

From this high-level data it’s difficult to relate this to the consequences of historic preservation laws, but that’s one thing it makes me think about. Interesting to see if that would actually make a difference visible on this map, considering the relative durability of old brick and stone buildings.
