DuPage County, IL was $77,000+ in 2010...I guess that one at $74,000 on here is more believable as an estimate.

We don't all live in a NYC slum called Jersey that feel the need to go to NYC anytime we want something.

but if u wan keep doin this, go head, u jus mad NJ is more important than country ass Indiana
NYC is the capital of the world btw, not London
Basically meaning that Jersey doesn't mind being the trash of New York then I guess. And in all honesty the only reason Jersey suburbs is that populated is because NY is right next to it. Jersey can pretty much be named the state of NY rejects.

Look to older river cities for affordability like: St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh.
