"What is it like living in NYC?"
Mon Dec-08-14 10:43 AM by lightworks

          

I know this post gets posted a lot but maybe since the last time it was posted yall got new perspectives.

Is $50k enough to enjoy living in one of the boroughs and not get killed or eat ramen nightly?

Edit: I expect to have roommates. I just don't want these roommates to be rats. Or roaches. Or murderers lol.
