If you have been around ... were born ,raised and still living in New York you would be easily familiar with the term "keeping up with the Jones".

It's news for me not because I don't live in NYC but because I usually associate it buying the nicer car, upgrading this in your house, adding this to your yard, etc. It's something I associate with life in the suburbs.
