NYC sounds rough... my house is less than your studios... and I'm sure food and everything else is much, much less too. I already feel poor, could not imagine living there...

That's why I only go there to hang out for a few days at a time. It's nuts how fast money just vanishes even when you're just eating and drinking out.

 

I'm pretty comfy in beantown and my rent is less than half of novelty's...as is my salary I'm betting haha.

Every time I spend a weekend in Manhattan, I spend at least $200 on just eating and a few drinks.

Yeah, I don't actually search for any studies myself. Seems boring and I don't really know where to look or what to look for.

 

I just browse that other forum and read the studies and conclusions other knowledgable posters bring up.

Decided to withdraw from the Novice Division, as I think I'm good enough to win Overall and some judges may be biased against a novice winning.

It depends

Wifey n I moved down from Manhattan... she works about 20 miles from where we live now, I work from home. Our rent in Manhattan was ~$2100 for a 1 BR in the UES, but aside from that our only bills were cable, metro cards, phones and insurance for my motorcycle

Moving down here, our rent got cut in half, but now we pay about $200/mo to insure our 2 cars, another $150/mo to finance wifey's (we bought mine cash, I didn't need anything special), and another $300-400 or so a month for gas. Food is surprisingly not much cheaper (we cook ~90% of our meals). Only place we really save is on going out, and we've never been huge into that anyway... maybe 1-2 nice meals a month and a couple of beers with some friends.

So in reality, living in NYC isn't too expensive as a young bachelor... shit gets hairy when you start to want to settle down. If you and whoever you are with make less than $200K/yr it's gonna be pretty much impossible to start a family and have any kind of quality of life + own property. Over the last ~10-20 years that idea has become a luxury. So if you want to move to NYC, cool, but be sure to either plan to make IB money or have a solid + realistic exit plan.

I'm not gonna lie, I miss NYC sometimes, but then I look out of my window and see trees and hear birds chirping... and look at my spacious ass apartment and half decent car (350Z). Also by some miracle we managed to rebound big time on our savings.... moving down here cost like $10K and we are about that much ahead after less than a year down here. So getting out is good. It's not just NYC either, it's the whole miserable Northeast IMO. Shit only starts to get decent/make sense once you get down to like Philly, and then it gets silly again around DC.

I'm actually hoping I end up in philly for grad school. I think I'd like to stay in Boston or move to NYC but QoL would be shit.

Try going with a girlfriend. Between hotel room , dinner , cocktails and brunch the next day a full night in nyc usually runs me 1500-2000.

Also, drive an Audi a5 navy with a great warm brown interior and my work truck is a navigator.
