And I totally agree on earnings vs. what your dollar gets you. I'm still not paying what I paid in 1994 to see hockey games (comparable seats; MSG vs. HSBC). So if you make 150K in the NYC area you'd probably only need about 65K to have the same or better standard of living in the Buff..
whatever, it is what it is, and peoples perceptions are what they are.
