I heart New York
But anyway, of course I scanned Manhattan real estate prices. (That's me, above. [Cameras can correct for red eyes. Why can't they correct for big butts too?]) It is possible to buy a studio in a decent neighborhood for $400k. The prices seemed to go to $700k for one bedrooms, and of course seven figures is common as well. Brooklyn seems to be about as expensive as Manhattan. Space is at a premium, so if you're contemplating a move, you'll need to get rid of a lot of your stuff. Needless to say, you won't need a car, but subway rides are $2.20 each way, so you won't save a lot of money by not driving.
Would I live there if I could afford it? Hmmm....
