    Sucks to live on NYC, man! Two bedroom apartments in my building are now going for almost $2000 and MONTH; that's insane since I don't live on what would be considered an "affluent part of town", if you will)! With the new baby on the way Lorena and I are seriously considering moving out of NYC altogether.

    I love living in Missouri where housing is REALLY cheap. See, no Missouir cities on the list. :D  I'm kind of surprised that some Kansas cities didn't make it though. I know of a few that are really really expensive to live in.

    Where ranked #27? I thought Philly was the #1 as far as taxes. That's why Botcon will never be held here. :(

    You're the highest for taxes in the state. If the planned convention center is built here, there is a hopefor Bocon!

    My wife and I live in NYC at the moment, but are most likely going to move to NH at the end of our current lease. We make about $120K and cannot afford equity (decent sized house in Queens or Long Island will run you about $600K and up). Houses twice the size are half the price where we are looking to move to. I was born and raised in NYC, but it just does not make sense to live here anymore, especially considering we would like to start a family in the near future..

    I totally agree. Saving up money for a down payment on a house or condo/co-op in NYC requires a lot of time and an insane amount of sacrifice. Scrapping together $30K - $35K is not an easy task, let alone having to pay for a $400K+ mortgage.

    I work for a construction management firm and in on of our projects (8 floor building w/condos) the apartments will be selling for $600K+! The kicker is that these apartments aren't necessarily in a rich part of town (Brooklyn to be more precise) either.

    Unless you already own a house, condo, or co-op in NYC, it's going to be very tough to enter the market now and find a place to live unless you're willing to reside in a neighborhood that requires you to walk around with a bulletproof vest. Who'd want to raise their family in a place like that?

    If you make $120k a year, you can afford a $600k home.
