Expensive is relative, compared to average salary or just flat out price?

I would say the whole Miami to West Palm Beach area is most expensive as compared to salary but NYC and DC is most expensive overall.

Thinking has nothing to do with it. Scientific studies prove that New York City is the most expensive city in the USA and one of the most expensive in the world. One such study's results:

Why is this even a poll? There are no opinions regarding this topic, there are only facts.

New York is the most expensive and that's a fact.

I voted once, with a lot of votes. I disregarded the "most" part. I voted based on the word expensive.
