An Affordable City
It is also perfectly possible to visit New York City without making it a bank-busting occasion. Though living in Manhattan can be expensive because of high rents, one can easily get delicious meals here for under ten dollars and see the sights of the city for the price of a subway token. The cost of standard necessities and even amenities are consistent with those in other regions of the country.
