Zip codes in honor of graduation

A few weeks ago I came across a fun little tool to map out zip codes around the nation, and, being bored, decided to go through and pick out some zip codes I thought were interesting. In honor of my graduation today, and in place of deep, insightful reflection on such vague questions like "how I feel," I decided to post that whole list here, along with some fun facts at the end.
