Report: Brooklyn is the most unaffordable place to live in America


Yay! We beat San Franciso and Manhattan. There’s really no news here for anyone trying to buy in Brookyn, but at least we’re number one! Ugh:

A person earning the average salary in Brooklyn cannot afford the average home there — even if he or she could spend his entire salary (and then some) on housing, [Read more…]
