A little over $32 an hour. That's about where I'm shooting for next raise / job. Slowly climbing the AMI mountain. Haha.

Technical Support Engineers average $65,000 for NYC. Would like to match or exceed that come review time.

$100K will NOT even get you a SATC lifestyle. Even without debt. But you can get better-quality cheese!

Just throw in some better food options and I'm sold.

Wtf? How is it that much in the Bronx?

Bronx really isn't well priced rent wise. I consider the Bronx better to buy in at least while Brooklyn and Queens is better to rent (along the subways at least).

I think 40K per person is the norm in my area from what I've seen, although sometimes you have a 20k earner with a 50k earner. That's why there are so many artists.

Most people are married or live with someone that they are dating in some way. I wouldn't get a whole apartment to yourself unless you're like 60 years old. One thing that I really dislike is how so many apartments are income restricted or limited in some way.

I am not all that convinced that living in Kingsbridge or around Yankee Stadium is super "comfortable" (crime?). With a possible exception of a rare lucky find in Pelham Parkway, other areas you mentioned are all more expensive than Parkchester. While Parkchester does not have the highest quality of life in the Bronx or in New York City, it does have the highest ratio of quality of life vs. cost of buying property (for both the Bronx and NYC in general).
What about that 300 dollar apartment on Story Avenue that was bandied about in prior discussions? I would basically consider that the same area as Parkchester.
