15. Money down the drain
For the price a person pays for an apartment in NYC they could easily buy a house almost anywhere else in the country. There’s no doubt that many people think about it, but just as many dismiss this because, let’s face it, NYC is a hub of human activity. Like the song says, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere. The only issue now is making it in the first place. Seriously, it is extremely expensive.
