I don't know how there can be 90 floors when all renders have 75..Architect's official page says 75 floors..I have info about every floor and there's 75 floors..So this info in article is wrong..

Those two buildings on the left of pic, the twinlike, since when are they sitting there? I don't recognize them from my time in NY in 2006. (I know, it is been a while)

There not twin like, they're twin towers.

I know you guys were talking prices earlier, but cn you explain to me what a normal 2-bed room will be to rent for 1 month? Around here, $1000 will get you a real nice place for a month. It would just be nice to compare.

You talking about that area of Manhattan. Because a 1,000 bucks, could get you a spot in the projects in Harlem.

Sorry to be O/T, but to answer this question,

It varies a lot based on neighborhood, amenities and convenience to transportation. Examples:

I have a bedroom in a 3-bedroom 3rd-floor walk-up. It's on a really nice, quiet street in the West Village within easy walking distance of 8 subway lines. I pay $925 per month plus utilities.

A coworker has a 1-bedroom 2nd-floor walk-up in the East Village. She pays $2,000 a month plus utilities.

A good friend of mine lives in a one-bedroom apartment in a converted bank tower on Wall Street. The building has a doorman, gym and theater. She pays $2,400 a month plus utilities.

I used to live in the same Wall Street tower. I was in a bedroom of a 3-bedroom apartment. I paid $1,400 a month plus utilities.

Another friend lives in a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse with a terrace. Her building has a doorman and gym. It's on the Upper East Side near Bloomingdale's. She pays $7,500 a month plus utilities.

Everything varies greatly in the city. Anything as flashy and new as Carnegie will undoubtedly be outrageously expensive. (And far beyond my means.)

Somehow I am almost more interested in this building than the whole WTC project, I check this thread more regurlarly. I think it's because of it's location, it's much more dense than Lower Manhattan. It's just Great that such a tall building is being build here, so close to Central Park and all.

I'd live in the Village for $925 a month. It's nice quiet and far away from East New York lol. But I'm sure I'd need a better job.


Hi King

You know there's a lot of 700 footers in that area.

Since we're O/T, let me ask you new yorkers, how much do people earn per month there? For example architect and let's say, postman..Or any job you're familiar with..

Because when I translate, let's say $1000 to kunas (official currency in Croatia), that's about 5000 kunas..And that's average job payment in Croatia..This apartment for $1000 would be freakin' expensive here..

I don't know a lot of numbers for other jobs, but I'm an executive assistant at a fashion company and I make between 3 and 4 thousand dollars a month (after taxes etc). The pay here is high, but the cost of living just might be higher.

My mortgage is $1,300 per month for a 3,000 sqf 3 story c.1890 6 bedroom Victorian house in Philadelphia. It has high ceilings, 3 fireplaces, 17 of the 39 windows are the original leaded stained glass windows, pocket doors, and two staircases.

A lot of people who work in NYC are considering living in Philly.

The overwhelming majority of people in NYC rent and don't own their apartment. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of apartments in NYC are rent-regulated with caps imposed by the government.

I'm not even close to being a New Yorker, but since our rents are similar (ours are actually a bit lower), it might help to let you know that people here earn, on average, around $2,500 - $3,000 /month. Therefore, an average worker who rents an above average apartment would be spending about 30% + on rent.
