Big Apple is big bargain

Posted in How much???, Top Dollar News by Jim McMillan on July 24, 2008

So you thought it was expensive to live in Manhattan? Nyet! The weak-as-water Dollar means that New York has fallen seven places to number 22, in a world cost-of-living survey from Manhattan human resources consulting firm Mercer.

Moscow is currently the priciest city to live in, reports Crain’s New York, followed by Tokyo and London.

On average, a cup of coffee, including service, sets you back about $3.75 in Manhattan, compared with Vancouver ($3.88), London ($4.32), Dublin ($4.42), Amsterdam ($4.05), and Paris ($6.77). Merde!
