The cost of living in New York is nearly 40 points above the national average. While utilities are slightly less, everything else is more expensive, especially the housing. Expect to pay over 130 points more than the national average, with a median home cost that is also more expensive. Of course, much of this is due to living in NYC, where buying a home can cost you much money. However, if you look to move outside of the city, you can find much more affordable homes. You can also get the best of both worlds by moving to a smaller town closer to the city.
