No Wonder I'm So Broke...


A new study shows that if you make over $100,000 a year in New York City, you're barely middle class. NY Daily News:

A New Yorker would have to make $123,322 a year to have the same standard of living as someone making $50,000 in Houston.

In Manhattan, a $60,000 salary is equivalent to someone making $26,092 in Atlanta....

The average monthly rent in New York is $2,801, 53% higher than San Francisco, the second most expensive city in the country.

I guess this makes me, officially, "poor". Poverty sucks.

It's a hard city to live in. I'd only do it if I won a really big lottery, or if I were a kept woman. :)

See, I was just feeling sad about my massive mortgage payment and you put it all in perspective for me.

And scare the crap out of me, because DQ is dead set on attending NYU. Gulp!

Wow. There are days I feel like I could use a good sugar daddy, but for NYC I'd need an international arms dealer or bonafide sultan!

P,B!

One of the few benifits of ATL. (the drawbacks are the back water, red state people.
