The Average Cost Of Living In NYC

Cost Of Living

In NYC where I'm from, the cost of living is really high especially in Manhattan. I'm living in the Bronx, and the rent over here is also really high for the amount of space and lack of securities. You would've thought that this borough would have low rent. Is true some place has low rent but only for low income families and there in a crime ridden area. Who would want that.

Having A Small Family

In order for you to live in New York City you have to make a decent amount of money or end up living in a crappy neighbor paying high price rent. According to NY DailyNews living well in Holly Springs, Mississippi with a family of four will cost $48,000 with money left over to go on a vacation. A family of four who lives in mid to lower Manhattan will cost $98,000 with no money for a vacation and scrapping for food.

Get Out Of Town!

If it wasn't for my new job in the city I would've moved to a different state. I was looking at Texas, with no state income tax, it was very enticing. Me and my wife is now looking at upper Westchester county where our money is able to be spread more evenly.

Living in the Bronx all my life gave me more life experience than any college would've given me and for that I'm grateful. However raising a family in a drug infested neighbor and risking my kids to witness what I've, no thank you. They could learn what I've seen when I teach them about it.

So if you still adamant in moving to NYC, just keep in mind that there's other places beside the city you could move into. You could research the outer boroughs, Long Island or even the Hudson Valley.

Glorifying

Movies, TV and realities shows have shown living in NYC to be a great adventure. But quite frankly, is nothing more than an illusion. If you enjoyed riding the subway in the morning with people who panhandling every other stop, than welcome to New York City. Homelessness has risen to all time high and the major subway stations wreaks of urine and feces.

Surviving In NYC

You got a family of four living within your means. If you still got your toddler still using diapers, it's in your best interest to start potty training. Buying Pampers will cost around $50 a box and living in NYC $50 more in your pockets will give you more money to buy groceries and other essentials. So go ahead move to New York City I dare you. But don't tell me I didn't warn you!
