To live a comfortable and satisfying lifestyle in New York, even when you have roommates splitting the cost, a yearly income of $50,000 or more is ideal.
New York City is generally considered the most expensive place to live in America. The Numbeo cost of living index uses New York City’s prices as the benchmark for their cost of living calculations, scoring it as 100 out of 100 and expressing other cities’ prices as a percentage relative to what you would pay in NYC .
According to U.S. Census Bureau’s 2013-2017 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, the median individual income in New York City is $50,825 . Inflation would bring this number a little higher, but not that much higher. So yes, 150k is a good salary in NYC even before bonus.
$80k is enough technically but it would be a far more comfortable situation to split a place 2 or 3 ways if hell bent on living in Manhattan. Wouldn’t leave you with a lot left over after paying a $2,000 rent bill plus all utilities on your own.
“I definitely think you can live comfortably on a salary of $50,000, even in New York City ,” says Haskins. “It’s an expensive city, but I think if you know where your money is going and you recognize what your priorities are, it’s totally doable.”
Yes you can , you won’t live the life of luxury and you won’t be living on the island, but you can work and live in the five boroughs of NYC on that salary. My first job wasn’t much more than 40k and it was hourly non salary pay without benefits.
$500,000 annually, even considering NYC expenses, would be rich, and closer to Top 1 Percent territory than Middle Class. Meaning one could live quite well on $500K.
Yes, easily, but you would have to share an apartment, paying about $750 per month for a room in the outer boroughs and far out in them as well, but at $30,000 your taxes would be low and you might still have $1,000 or so a month left for other expenses.
55k isn’t a bad starting salary in NYC . Most of my friends make around that (we’re all in our mid 20s, most of us moved here after college graduation). Yes, you will be living paycheck to paycheck. You could also go into FiDi for an apartment, so you can definitely live in Manhatten for your salary .
Your annual salary of $200,000 would end up being about $96.15 per hour. You’d live pretty good in NYC in fact you’d be able to live in almost every neighborhood in NYC . Rent average from 1,500 a month if you are lucky to 4,000 and higher but you could most likely buy an apartment with that kind of salary .
The national average income to be considered “rich” is $118,080 , but of course, it’s higher in New York City, where you need to make at least $143,794 to be in the upper echelons.

Yes, definitely. Both Manhattan , depending on neighborhood, and most parts of Brooklyn. When I first moved to NY, I was only making $45k and I lived in Brooklyn. At 70k , you can afford up to $1750 per month in rent (most places in NY require you to make 40 times the rent amount).
You can do quite well in NYC with 80k / year depending. If you ‘ re sharing an apartment you ‘ll have a lot more buying power, but 80k won’t put you in the lap of luxury. If you ‘ re sharing an apartment you ‘ll have a lot more buying power, but 80k won’t put you in the lap of luxury.
