The memorable ZIP code 12345 is located in which state?
The city of Schenectady, New York once went by the name “Electric City” as a reference to two major manufacturing businesses that once dominated the industry: General Electric (GE) and the American Locomotive Company. GE’s presence in the area was large enough to earn them their own ZIP code. And they lucked out with one of the easiest ones to remember: 12345.
But such a memorable ZIP code actually made life a little more difficult inside the GE mailroom, which soon became prone to getting all kinds of strange mail, including letters addressed to fictional characters like Humpty Dumpty and Mickey Mouse. And while the town of Schenectady has a mere 66,000 residents, people using 12345 as a “fake” ZIP code for online registrations has put the “population” at more than 1 million.
Answer: The correct answer is New York
