I wouldn't want to live there, the lighting is so bad that most of the people don't even cast a shadow, and one of them has phantom light shining on her from the wrong direction of the source
I couldn't live in a place that ignores physics like that.

Oh and it's stupid small for 1k a month, I'll let the hipters have them.

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.

That is cheap. I pay 1300 for a 975sq foot townhouse with a tiny yard

Multi-purpose rooms are big in asia and a great way to not have a huge area. I think its great.

I agree. In 1999 I payed $845 for studio. Finally I said GTFO with this and moved out the city.

I know for New York that's probably cheap but it still seems very expensive to me.

I wish I had that. I have half the space at 4 times the cost.

I guess thats why I don't understand the whole reason why young people want to live in the city. Housing is through the roof, food and entertainment is super expensive, and you aren't saving much (if anything).

Seems a hell of a lot better to live in the suburbs and either commute or find a job outside the city and visit every once in awhile

^ I guess the draw is the possible high incomes, or a quest for stardom.

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.

[/quote]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.
