The TRUE cost of living in NEW YORK CITY

The TRUE cost of living in NEW YORK CITY


this is how much money it costs to live in new york city Bu videoda… Dünyanın en pahalı şehirlerinden birinde yaşamanın ne kadar tuttuğunu… …göstermek için sıradan bir günümü aktaracağım. I wake up at 5:30 AM And i turn on the lights Sonra yakınlarda bir spor salonuna gidip, kısa bir egzersiz yapıyorum. Eve gidip duşa giriyorum ve bugün ay başı olduğu için ev kiramı ödüyorum. Sonra bir arkadaşımla telefonda bir iş görüşmesi yapıyorum. Tabi ki bir sonraki filminde yer alırım, aman tanrım! Hiç sormayacaksın sanmıştım. Marty konuşmaktan kafamı şişirdiği için kapıdan geçerken ışıkları söndürmeyi unutuyorum. New York’ta bir yerden bir yere gitmenin en uygun yolu taksiye binmek, bu yüzden Soho’nun aşağısından bir taksi tutuyorum. New York’ta yaşadığım için pek yemek pişirmem. O yüzden en sevdiğim kahvaltı lokantasına gidip, koyu bir kahve alıyor ve lezzetli bir kahvaltı ediyorum. Sonrasında tekrar taksiye atlayıp, şehrin yukarısına, ofise gidiyorum. Şehir merkezinde güzel bir ofis kiraladım. Günüm oldukça yoğundu. Dediğim gibi yemek yapmaya vaktim olmadığı için… …öğle yemeğine dışarı çıkıyorum. Cuma günü olduğundan bugünlük işim bitti. Casa’ya gitmek üzere taksiye biniyorum. Bu akşam şık bir yemeğe davetliyim ve siz de biliyorsunuz ki iyi görünmeliyim. Özel tasarım ceketimi giymeye karar verdim ve… US Village’teki ziyafet için evden çıktım. Bu şekilde yaşamak için, Ayda ortalama sekiz bin iki yüz doksan iki dolar harcadım. Şimdi geri gidelim. Aynı güne tekrar bakalım ve biraz farklı olsun. Sabah saat beş buçukta kalkıyorum Ve ışıkları açıyorum. Sokakta bedavaya sporumu yapıyorum. Alıp öğüttüğüm kahve çekirdekleriyle kendime bir kahve yaptım ve evimin çatısından güneşin doğuşunu izledim. Yemek alışverişi yapıyor ve her öğünü kendim pişiriyorum. Her zaman kahvaltımı evde yapıyorum. Sonra oturup, ev kiramı ödüyorum. Ama ev arkadaşım olduğu için ödemeyi ortak yapıyoruz. Eski bir arkadaşla kısa bir iş görüşmesi yapıyorum. Bazı işleri halletmek için internetin başına geçiyorum. Bu çok önemli bir arama fakat… Kapıdan çıkmadan önce ışığı kapatacak zamanı buluyorum. New York City sokaklarına dökülüyorum. Bisikletime atlayıp, hiç para vermeden işe gidiyorum. Ofisimi iki iş ortağımla paylaşıyorum. Sürekli fikir alışverişi yapıyor ve ofisin kirasını üçe bölüyoruz. Evden öğle yemeği için getirdiğim yemeği yiyorum. Verimli bir günün ardından… … ofisten çıkıp bedavaya eve gitmek için bisikletime biniyorum. Yılın bu zamanları evde güzel bir yemek pişirmek gibisi yok, o yüzden yemeğimi yapıp yiyorum. Bu akşam birkaç arkadaşla buluşmak için dışarı çıkıyorum ve siz de bilirsiniz ki iyi görünmeliyim. İkinci el dükkanından aldığım vintage ceketimi giyiyorum. Arkadaşlarla görüştükten sonra… …ev arkadaşımla küçük ev sinemamızda film izlemek için eve gidiyorum. Bu şekilde yaşayarak ayda ortalama iki bin altı yüz yetmiş bir dolar harcıyorum. Bu videoya New York’a taşınmayı düşündüğünüz için tıkladığınızı biliyorum… …ve bunun size çok pahalıya patlayacağını düşünüyorsunuz. Bunu yapamam diyorsunuz. Ama videoda gördüğünüz üzere, Gün içinde seçebileceğiniz pek çok yol, zamanla keşfedeceğiniz pek çok seçenek mevcut. Ve eğer zamanınızı ayırıp, Bu şekilde harcamalarınızı kısarsanız, çok para biriktirebilirsiniz. Birçok izleyicim bana mesaj attılar; Ve bana şöyle sorular sordular; “Şehre nasıl taşınabilirim?” “Bunu nasıl gerçekleştirebilirim?” Belli bir bütçeyle New York’a taşınmak tamamen mümkün. Ve bunu yaparken sevdiğiniz şeyler için para biriktirmek de mümkün. Benim için bu seyahat etmek mesela… Oldukça kısık bir bütçeyle yaşıyorum ki dünyayı gezebileyim ve o çılgınca maceraları yaşayabileyim. Sonra küçük apartman daireme geri dönüyorum ve beni motive eden şey bu. Bunlar sizin yaşadığınız yerle karşılaştırılınca ne kadar pahalı geliyor? Ve bu videoda sizi en çok şaşırtan ne oldu? Bana sorarsanız kesinlikle yemek konusu. Şehirde yemek, kiradan sonra en pahalı şey. Bu konu üzerine sizlerle konuşmayı çok isterim. O yüzden bulunduğunuz şehirde yaşamanın ne kadara mal olduğuyla ilgili düşüncelerinizi aşağıya yorum olarak yazın. Ah ve şuna bakın. Bunu paylaşmam gerek. New York’ta mevsimin ilk karı yağdı ve şunun ne kadar güzel olduğuna bakın. Eğer video ilginizi çektiyse… Bir arkadaşınızla paylaşın ve kanalımı takip etmek için hemen şuraya tıklayın. Ve daha fazla videomu izlemek için şuraya tıklayın. Ve her zaman dediğim gibi, haftaya gelecek olan bir sonraki videoda görüşmek üzere. O zamana dek, oh gee(?) izleyicileri; daha sık gülümseyin, daha az endişe edin ve sevdiğiniz şeyi bırakmayın.

  2. I like this guys hussle. These videos are well made and it's glossy but not insanely over the top unrealistic. All his videos he's essentially being honest, lots of people say it's crazy expensive to live there which is true. But most aren't gonna retire in new York, they just want to live a part of their lives in new York to experience it….it's a story itself…good work

  9. The subway is practical transportation and you just don’t know how to cook 😂😂 unrealistic for most people

  10. but like… This isn't the "true cost" of living in New York. this is how much your typical month is in NewYork. I can bet that living up there can be much cheaper than what was mentioned.
    For example, In my neighborhood electicity s usually $80 to $130 depending on the season. My electric is about $30 to $30 by not using my lights, AC or being the house constantly.
    Food is cheap since I self prepare and look for hot deals. For typical meals; I usually have a $0.49 Bagle with $0.25 worth of cream cheese and $0.13 cup of black coffee; note that I sometimes skip breakfast and even get free coffee at work 90% of the time. A $0.50 can of soup every lunch keeps budget down as well as solids, pair it with free water at work and I'm good to go. Dinners vary but usually costs to about $1 to $1.50 worth of groceries.
    Entertainment? I work and when I'm off I work at home on my career with clothing, design, and videos. If a friend wants to go out, I usually don't do anything fancy and when I have to pay for my own food I get the cheapest thing or skip a meal. Forget about being fancy, I just dress in normal clothes I've always had that were either given to me or I got on super sale.
    The only things that are expensive in my lifestyle are rent and my car, $700 to $750 for rent and $350-$400 for auto insurance and gas. It all depends on the season, but I try not to drive a lot and I have the whole apartment to myself because I went to a trashy neighborhood that has really cheap rent. On average with ALL my bills and expenses I spend roughly $1,150 to $1,300 every month. If I were to new york, I can cut my car off, raise food and ret a little more but living with roommates I can expect $750 to $800 I would estimate my spending around $1,200 to $1,500 every month, depending on how much I want to budget. and I can bet that I can probably make a plan that's even cheaper.
    end note: oops I made a rant, please forgive numbers as they are estimates towards real costs, also I'm not trying to "one-up" @Erik Conover, its just a mention that t his isn't a "true cost" of living in NYC, just HIS "True cost" of living in NC and how little things can make a drastic change in your monthly cost of living.

  11. Oh i get it. If he splits the rent then i understand but even poor New Yorkers treat themselves to a drink or meal out in the city. What does he do during winter months, ride a bike? He don’t have a girlfriend to treat out? Neither of those lifestyles are realistic. And he didn’t factor in electric and internet. I would add at least another $200 to that budget. But a huge difference. Who pays $200 for food for one person, unless its a special occasion. Boy i need that first life for a week. I would never complain about living in the Bronx

  12. $2700 a month on food!!
    $1350 a month on transportation?
    $1000 on a coat?
    You make more money then you have brains!
    You waste so dam much.
    Not the true cost at all!
    I lived there for 15 years.
    You can go cheaper then that!

  13. Very nice video! These are my thoughts after 5 years here in Manhattan:
    – it's not guaranteed that you find your bicycle when you leave the office, or at least not all of it. Also, people are crazy while driving and have 0 respect for the bicyclists. I love to bike (I ride home every day from Union Sq to the UWS with city bikes – 170$ a year) and I really have seen the worst things. The delivery guys also…
    – NY in winter is crazy cold and it rains/snows a lot so you need to use public transportation: 35$ unlimited per week or 140$ per month (or 2.75 $ per ride)
    – the cabs now apply 2.5$ surcharge for the congestion price, and spending just 10$ almost never happens! The traffic is always intense.

    – if you want to have the cable TV you need to spend min 150$ a month (internet included)
    – it's not easy to find a 2250$ apartment unless you find something uptown or super small. Downtown, a decent 1 bedroom apt is about 3500$ per month
    – it's always good to have renter insurance because you'll never know. Add 100$ per month.

    – I love cooking at home, but you also need to consider where you buy your food. It might be super expensive especially if you buy your meat at the butcher (ex: 2 little pork chops -> 25$) and you like to eat organic (1$ per Apple!)
    – You own a car? Be careful with the streets cleaning days, it could cost you 65$ if you forget it. What about a parking garage in the city? 500$ a month!

    – Last but not least, if you decide to purchase an apartment the monthly fees sometimes are even higher than the rent you mentioned.
    NYC is crazy expensive (unless you go and live in the suburbs) but I couldn't be happier to be here!

  14. Hey man, I am really enjoying your videos. Hopefully, I will be getting my residency in NYC so I find your videos and ideas very useful! Thank you so much! 👋👍🙏

  15. HOOOOOOOOOLD up no way did just read $100 a month for a gym membership ???????/ my country (Wales) is £10 max for a insanely good gym .. I need to open up a business in the USA ahah

  16. Or just make your parents buy you a 15 million penthouse and live of the 1 million they give you a year…..

    Too bad that’s not my case

  17. Missing a bit more stuff but yes it’s almost impossible to live a comfortable life in NYC. I’ve been truly blessed with a very cheap apartment.

  18. That's why I wouldn't like to live in new York. I prefer to travel there as a tourist for a short time. By being an extremely expensive city, the quality of life is not good. Many new Yorkers hate living there for the same reason.

  19. You cook yourself and dinner costs you 15 USD?? and you show a simple pasta salad, come on it doesn´t cost you more than 2-3USD in normal cities if you do it yourself.
    You share a tiny apartment and office, ride a bike and spend close to 2.700 USD a month??? Hhahahhahahahahaa! thanks God that I don´t live in NYC!

  20. i earn roughly 85 grand annually , i still cant afford the city…but luckily i now live in the Bronx and i love it………

  21. $2,671 per month exceeds my total monthly income of about $2,000. Too many people live a dog's life in New York Shitty. I want to get out and never come back.

  22. Don't forget to factor in the possible hospital bill from hitting potholes and going over your handlebars on your bicycle. I rode for 3 years in the Bronx. Remember to use a helmet.
    Wait you only pay $498/month for a small office space?? $166×3

  23. Why not just go to romania (european country) because you can live godly with 700-800 dollar a month (if you pay for rent) but with 500-600 you can live godly if you live in a house.

  24. If you tax the 1% Rich by 2% . There would be free School and hospital in the whole US. Is that a bad idea? The Rich won’t even notice it

  25. My statement is, if you have to live on a budget of 2700 a month and all your money is then gone, what do you do for entertainment if you have no money left? Why even be there in the first place? I honestly think that New York is over rated, it has tall buildings, no grass except in central park, traffic is horrible – sure they have nice stores and restaurants but if you can't afford to shop or eat at them what is the point ? We have most of those stores where I live and the ones we don't have I have internet and can shop online…..Just makes no sense to me..that's all….

  26. Why bother with a $200 "thrift" jacket 🤔 that's losing the whole meaning of thrifty… And it's not even a need. If he had home cooked meals he could get by on $200 a month for food and groceries (and that's a bodybuilding diet). That co-working space is pricey as heck 😅 apart from that and the rent, why not use the subway?

  27. Chicago 950 2 bedroom. pay light garbage. Have a one car garage and a yard. Food is chep don't need a car and my job pays me more then anof to pay rent Bill's and still go out on a Saturday night 24 fast food enything u want at eny time Chicago is the city that don't sleep but also won't kill u on the way.

  28. Malaysia: With the amount of your electricity bills, we can live here a month. including rents, foods and groceries and more.
