This has not been my experience. Not even close.
Hmmm... Ok, I should have been more clear.
For higher end rentals and buying a place NYC is certainly much more expensive.
But for comparable studio's, 1br's, and 2+br's (split w/ roommates) in Manhattan it is priced similarly. To be clear, you can mitigate your costs by living in NW far from the Metro, Silver Spring, Balston, etc. I'm talking about NW near the Metro -- Dupont, Farragut North, Woodly Park, Cleveland Park, Capitol Hill, G'Town.
