NYC has pockets of cheapness
This is another good story of a woman named Madeleine. She lives in Harlem and wrote that she happened to find a rental car for cheaper in NYC than it would be in her native San Fran. Madeline has two roommates in her NYC apartment and even said that there are some ‘cheap’ spots in NYC, you merely have to look.
I guess if you compare two of the most expensive cities in the States, it is good to know that some people can afford NYC. I could not live in either city because of the living expense, just like the majority of folks.
