I wouldn't say the American Dream is dead. I think it just means different things based on where you live.

For my friend living in Omaha, it means he's able to purchase a house in his 20's working the same job I do.

It's different for me because of where I choose to live. I'm fully aware that my money could go further in other cities, but home ownership isn't a priority for me so it doesn't really matter to me that I'm renting.

The American dream is dead if you live in those expensive states.
