Which is equivalent to close to $100K in Chicago or NYC.
Its more like 68,000 in Chicago. Real estate in Chicago is reasonable. No way does it cost double to live in Chicago.
I looked at what it costs to live in Chicago when I was applying to schools. As compared to Texas, it's stupidly high.
You can find two bed condos for 200,000 in Lincoln Park, a nice area of Chicago. If you want to slum it up much cheaper.
200,000 will buy a hell of a house here. Like, about 3 two-bed condos could fit in to the house.
And that's not in the slums, either. That's quite nice sections of the city.
