In South Africa it costs me about 450usd per month including rent and car costs, so going to New York I should be able to live for about 3 hours at most

As a 20 year old, born and raised in Queens, I can say it costs way less if you live in another borough and commute into Manhattan for your work. Not only is rent cheaper, but the average costs for groceries and daily consumables is greatly reduced. Living and paying rent in Manhattan is a pocket drainer.

LA is also expensive but the energy that NYC gives you is priceless and you can’t get that vibe anywhere else. Excellent content.

I like this guys hussle. These videos are well made and it's glossy but not insanely over the top unrealistic. All his videos he's essentially being honest, lots of people say it's crazy expensive to live there which is true. But most aren't gonna retire in new York, they just want to live a part of their lives in new York to experience's a story itself...good work

A roommate in a tiny studio apartment? Really? I'm guessing they're boning because I don't see any other place to sleep in any of his video's. Also, the 'roommate' (we'll use air quotes from now on) only pays his half of the rent, but not internet, gas & electric? Sounds like a bad deal (but a good deal for the 'roommate') ;-). Anyway, don't want to give you a hard time, I guess at the end, I'm jealous of the 'roommate' #ErikIsAHunk

I lived in Manhattan for 12 years. You can live for cheaper than that

There is even cheaper way of living.
Spectrum internet - $44
Electricity - around $40. ( Just put most things into one outlet and turn them off to reduce trickle cost)
Food - balanced diet $90 a week
Fitness $15
Rent - Brooklyn and queens are in the "City" too and only 20 mins via train you can find something decent $1500+
Transport - $82 metro monthly via pre-tax

It's all about budgeting, understanding your constraints and working inside them. If you want to live like a king but don't have the means then make the means!
