    Key word, getting BACK to BK. When your drunk and tired at 4am on a Saturday night, and the L-train only makes limited stops every 30-45mins...your getting in a fucking cab.
    Where in the Billy did you live And rents in certain parts of BK are approaching those of rents in decent nabes in Manhattan. Made the decision crazy easy when me and my girl were ready to leave Crown Heights

    Driggs & Manhattan, right on McCarren park. I agree, now that W'burg is the cool place to be, the rents arent much cheaper than the city, unless you head east to the ghetto.

    So many places are like that. And the crazier part is, people are leaving Manhattan to go to these places. It's funny

    What does $2500.00 a month get you in a decent neighborhood in NYC?

    That sounds about right. I've been looking at apt's downtown with a $2k/month budget, and finding decent studios, and ehh 1br's. Your dollar stretches a lot further uptown though.

    what does decent neighborhood mean? if you don't mind boring neighborhood (mid town east, upper east side), then 2500 can get you decent 1 bedroom. Sometimes it's luck, I have friend getting a very good studio for under 2K like 3 blocks from columbus circle.

    Thats what i thought before i lived here. Sure there are cool things to do, and the weather is nice. But the people suck (the words pretentious, trashy, and golddigger, come to mind). Theres no culture or substance, just party party party. Gets old real quick.

    Hey now! I feel insulted.

    You should live in the Grove, its the only place I've lived in Miami where people actually wave to you when I run by.

    I recommend living downtown. Been in Greenwich Village for many years now and love it.

    Miami is a terrible city.

    The only people I've heard express a desire to move there are poors from Latin America. Do people work in that hellhole? Miami is tacky, poor, dangerous and nasty.

    Never again. I'm never leaving Manhattan. Ever.

    That's what I used to say. Then the downstairs neighbor decided he wants a duplex (two-story apartment for those not familiar with NYC). The first offer on my apartment came in at 1.25 x appraised value ... and I said no. But when the offer hit 3 x the appraised value ... I said to hell with New York ... he can have it.

    Ah, you made the right decision in 2007!
