Do that many people really want to "end up" in NYC? I don't think I've met a single person who does. A lot of people want to start out there, and some get sucked into the vortex for life. It's the place you go if you're single, need to pay off debt, and don't know where you want to be, yet.

There could well be more attorneys making $1m or more in NYC than in all other cities combined. It might be overstated, but it's not a myth.
