It is New York, though I think SF and Boston aren't too far behind.

Thought you'd be interested to know that gas prices in Chicago are actually slightly higher than in New York. So is the sales tax. But rent in NY is like 2x-3x higher than Chicago, and that's the big difference. Everything else is more or less the same.

I thought san francisco was the highest since thier housing prices are throught the roof. But I forgot all about nyc and it's prices. NYC was so expensive I had to pack up and move back home. I miss nyc it was so dam fun and worth the price if you could afford it.

While NYC might be pricier in terms of square footage when you look at the priciest neighborhoods, I think SF rates as the most expensive when you look at the larger metro area. For instance, you can find cheaper digs 20 miles out in Long Island or Newark, NJ than you can in Silicon Valley or Marin County.

You would be correct. $2.50+ for a CAN of soda. But, living in the NY, NJ, CT area is priceless! You can do so much.
