They’re those corners of the world that you just can’t get out of your mind. Places so special, or just plain weird, that they take on their own personalities. National Geographic scoured the United States to include just such places in its ZipUSA series.

This month buy a bushel of spicy steamed crabs, and get into the rhythm of the fish wharf in 20024, a Washington, D.C. zip code with more than 200 years of fishmongering tradition.

Other zips in the works range from an antics-rich New Hampshire summer camp to a New York City neighborhood forever changed by September 11.
