How do you afford living in new york
>>
Smuggle in extra large sodas from other states and sell them to fat people at a premium
>>
>>1041577
Why the fuck would you want to live in that shithole?
(Unless your job demands it)
>>
>>1041583
because your job demands it

i just want to go for the money for maybe 5 years after college then go to miami
>>
>>1041577
i live in a trailer in upper westside. On the road
>>
Live in the Bronx or Queens instead of Manhattan or the trendier parts of Brooklyn. Buy a bike used that to get around. Get your BJ's from old men in adult theatres instead of escorts. Don't eat out more than once a month.
>>
>>1041577

you get roommates/housemates and downsize your living requirements in your 20's.

and if you're not autistic, by the time you start your 30's, you should have made it big/got enough promotions to earn >100k a year or more and have enough saved up for a studio/1bed room.
>>
>>1041623
What if you dont have friends and suck at socializing?
>>
>>1041623
Just roommates and outer boroughs make it affordable enough to live there in your early 20s? I don't expect a huge room or a huge professionally furnished high rise in Manhattan just something small and simple
>>
>>1041577
by not stopping in atlanta first
>>
>>1041625

Then you live with the roaches and niggers. You dont have a problem with a drug dealer chillin on your door step do you?
>>
>>1041623

BTW, just wanted to ask if anyone misses the fact that it takes a 6 figure income to afford a 1 bedroom micro apartment?

For 100k a year you could live in a small mansion in the suburbs of most large cities. New York? No, it gets you a 700sqft apartment
>>
>>1041577
you can buy a nice efficiency right next to the train line in Yonkers for 120k
>>
>>1041577
you dont

as others said, you go to queens or the bronx or the shittier parts of brooklyn, then get a bike. best way to go and reasonably affordable. still need a gf that can support rent or roommates though.

but its not worth it if you can get jobs elsewhere. I'm only here for the kind of work I do (advertising).
>>
>>1041960
Whcih advertising company?

For cable? Do u work in financial district?
>>
>>1041625
Get roommates on Craigslist or from
college bulletin boards... You're not entitled to have everything laid out for you.
>>
>>1041876
Thats manhattan you dope, a single house in bayside queens is 300k..also bronx is cheap as fug to I hear
>>
>>1041577
I live in a developed city that is bigger than New York and my rent is $230/ month. Subway is 5 mins away from my house.
>>
>>1041876
Why would you want a mansion in the suburbs with a bunch of empty room when no one wants to visit you in suburbs.
>>
>you need 100k a year for a small apartment


Yeah I'm sure every single person living on their own is earning 6 figures

My friends dad makes 100k a year and has a suburban house in San diego
>>
>>1042146
Oh and also the average household income of Harlem is 35k
>>
>>1042115
So Tokyo? Because that's the only human-discovered city in all of existence larger than NYC.
>>
Property prices in Tokyo are almost as expensive as NY
>>
>>1041625

Practice so you don't suck at it?
>>
>>1041625
Breathe into your balls, talk from your balls. Here is how you practice. Grab your fucking balls, and breathe into then. Also meditate, it ends anxiety. On a final note, do shit that scares you. I don't know what, only you can determine that. Go build homes in haiti, get in a gang shootout, join the marines. Anything..
>>
New York isn't Manhattan. Most people in New York do just fine, and avoid the tourist and luxury parts. The trendiest places in Brooklyn are total fucking shit. Just live a few block away and you're fine. Its NYC, so just bike or walk to work/store. Take the subway as well. Don't drive a fucking car its utterly useless in that city.
>>
>>1042322

New York is Manhattan. Everywhere else in the city sucks. It just gets shittier the further you radiate away from Manhattan.
>>
>>1042564

Like the person who posted the income for Harlem... FFS I could post the houses in Chicago that are selling well below 10k each. You are most likely going to get robbed/killed in that neighborhood, but yea, the average income is probably only 20-30k a year.
>>
Is it possible to get a room in Brooklyn for 800?
