Millennials are increasingly moving west.

CNBC ranked what areas saw the biggest influx of millennials between 2011 and 2016 by using a combination of data from Zillow and RENTCafé. The report found that, though New York is among millennials’ top places to live, three Los Angeles neighborhoods in the top 10 made LA the most attractive city for the generation.

But are the incoming millennials able to afford their adopted cities? It’s an open question as more than 60 percent of the generation have less than $1,000 in savings as CNBC noted, though economist Issi Romem found that most newcomers to cities like LA and NYC earn significantly more than locals who are increasingly priced out of the market.

Organized by zip code, here’s a closer look at the top 10 places 20- and 30-somethings are moving to in droves. [CNBC]—Erin Hudson
