Its 2014 nobody envies New Yorkers and your medium sodas anymore.
I'm not directing this towards you. So, don't go crazy on me.
What don't you folks understand? Did you guys even know that most buildings won't even let you rent out if you don't have and annual salary that's 45x the rent?
How the Hell is ANYONE using their entire paycheck to live in a room? Buildings do this so people who can afford to live in those buildings live there. The last thing they want is to rent out a $2500 apartment to someone who only makes $40k a year and struggle to pay the rent.
I swear the ignorance and assumptions people make/show on NT is unbelievable sometimes
As for $2700 going a long way in other parts the country--Who the **** cares? If you live in NYC it doesn't matter what your rent can get you in Iowa or Nebraska. You pay to live here and everything reflects that.
You think people in NYC are making the same salary as people in Kansas City? No, it's all called cost of living and believe it or not--there's a scale that works with this kind of ****.Edited by Hank Scorpio - 2/13/14 at 11:09am
