Not all jobs in NYC or the metro area are in Manhattan. Find a job close to where you live in the outer boroughs or upper Manhattan. Or alternatively find a job making more money if you must live in Manhattan. But you aren't automatically entitled. People like you basically want to live in the most expensive places and pay little to no rent. Newsflash, it's just not happening.
Newsflash, jobs outside of Manhattan pay LESS.

I know it's a matter of compromise, I did it my entire life, my commute has never been less than 35 minutes at best and 2 hours at worst. Most of my life I commuted for an hour and a half taking a bus to a train from South Brooklyn. I just refuse to do it now that I'm older, especially now when the trains are more crowded than ever.

Also I never said I wanted to live in the most expensive area, you clearly didn't read my post but thanks for assuming. I wouldn't live in those areas if you paid me. I live in Midwood for crying out loud. Hardly the most expensive area, but thanks to the push from Ditmas Park, it's going up.

I love people who are not even originally from here trying to tell natives they need to adjust when they are the ones driving up the rents, even in the outlying areas.

Pretty sure NYWriterdude was born and raised in Queens.

Also, your logic doesn't totally make sense about who is driving up the rents. Isn't everyone driving up rents unless they own something? I don't really understand how it could be ONLY outsiders who drive up rents everywhere, including in outlying areas.

And I am so tired of the native/non-native crap on this board. Sorry to take it out on you, but every time I see something on this board about "natives" resenting "transplants" it makes me roll my eyes. People need to get used to the fact that this is a mobile country where residents are allowed to freely live where they want, including you.

Yeah I have to agree with you on that

I'm also tired of the assumption that all transplants are hipsters or lame yuppies

If you can't afford to pay rent to live on someone else's property you have three choices:

1) Make more money
2) Take in a roommate
3) Move.

It's pretty simple, you have no entitlement to a lifelong lease anywhere

The crime rate in the Bronx is actually slightly lower than in Brooklyn, and less than half the rate in San Francisco or Boston.

So the answer is no.

Brooklyn is all cool and hip now, but Brooklyn still has some of the most dangerous nabes in the city. Its time for hip gentry Brooklyn to become it's own borough so that they don't have to deal with ghetto folks.

I don't know about overall crime rate, but at least in murder rate Bronx is more dangerous this year:

Brooklyn: 102 (3.9/100k)
The Bronx: 70 (4.9/100k)
Queens: 50 (2.2/100k)
Manhattan: 32 (2.0/100k)
Staten Island: 11 (2.3/100k)

If are section 8 and you found a poor landlord that could barely maintain the building.

What's more worse. Overall crime rate or overall murder rate?
