The Daily News looks at middle-class Manhattan

reporting on a study by the Center for an Urban Future:
  • A New Yorker would have to make $123,322 a year to have the same standard of living as someone making $50,000 in Houston.
  • In Manhattan, a $60,000 salary is equivalent to someone making $26,092 in Atlanta.
  • The average monthly rent in New York is $2,801, 53% higher than San Francisco, the second most expensive city in the country.
See? It's not just me.
