Stalk Rich People With This Interactive Housing Map

You know how whenever you pass through a wealthy neighborhood, you can't help but think to yourself, 'Who the hell lives in these ridiculous houses and why am I not one of them?'

Well lucky for you, both of those questions can be answered with help from MansionMap, a new interactive website that shows exactly who lives where in the country's most well-to-do zip codes, and how they got so filthy rich. 

The site uses an amalgam of crowdsourced data collected through simple web research and records, then cross-checks 'em to overlay the identities of real estate owners and their home details. Each property is, theoretically, tagged for its features—i.e., pond, pool, tennis court, etc.—as well as its owner's general occupation, making it easier than ever to locate the abodes of every mogul, celeb, and distant old-money relative you so wish you were or had (legal) access to their bank accounts.

The site's still fresh and is growing its database every day, though there are plenty of recognizable names from all walks of fame and power, including the likes of Regis Philbin, Peter Brant, and Tom Cruise. However, we suspect once their teams of lawyers catch wind of these pseudo star maps, they'll be forced to take down at least a few listings, so browse now while they're bountiful.
