    The most I would pay for that apartment is $850-1,000 its definitely nothing special. You could be paying mortgage on a house for a lot less and for more space.

    Oh Gosh! It's interesting to see the cost of living in different states. In Atlanta a 5 bedroom house with a full  basement , private yard and driveway can run about 1,500.00 a month in a mortgage. Wow we!!  Nice video though...

    You damn right the rent is too high. To pay $4800 for rent? Having a mortgage is much cheaper. And it's not like you're even owning a piece of land it's just an apartment space. don't get me wrong I love New York City I would wish to live in New York City but the rent is ridiculous

    Her portion of nearly $1600 for her own bathroom and a decent size of a bedroom isn't bad. However, for $1600 I'd rather live in the outer boroughs (The Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens), and have my own one bedroom, but like anything else. NYC is all about location. Lincoln Center is close to everything. Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, if you want to take the trip to 72nd Street. And you should cause Whole Foods is just ridiculous. Great video.

    I grew up in NYC but haven't lived there in over 10 years. Whenever I'd think about moving back I'm immediately reminded of how insane the cost of living is and the quality of life is absolute shit. But hey, if you can afford it, do you boo.
