The feeling is mutual, my good sir ;)

Yeah, it's amazing to me how housing costs vary--although I suppose when you think about it, it's really just a case of supply and demand. Lots of people want (for whatever reason) to live on a little area of land, so the price goes up.

I don't know what's so desirable about Manhattan.

You can get lower mortgage payments on a house in PA, a lot lower than $940 a month.

You are paying for location. People that live there usually depend on public transport which saves them a few hundred a month on car bills, gas, insurance, etc. It works itself out in the end. Otherwise nobody could afford living there.
