You May Not Want To Hear How Much Money You Have To Make To Live In New York

If you visit the state of New York, it won’t take long for you to stumble upon a conversation where someone is talking about how high the taxes are here. While our state taxes are one thing we often complain about, it’s also the overall cost of living that’s become quite pricey here in the Northeast.

If you’re like me, you may rationalize the expensive cost of living in New York by reminding yourself that we (knock on every piece of wood there is to knock on ever) almost never deal with things like devastating natural disasters. A higher cost to live versus dealing with wildfires and tornadoes running rampant through our state usually feels like a fair trade. But the website How Much broke down the main points of why it’s so expensive to live in the Empire State – and you’re going to want to take a look at this.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
