Affordable Housing? Yeah Right
In suburban Montclair, New Jersey, one million dollars could get you "an 11-room Colonial with cathedral ceilings, a master bedroom suite, a big backyard and still leave you with enough money to buy groceries every week for 25 years." But in Manhattan, you're looking at "two small bedrooms, a small living room, a bathroom so small that the sink, shower stall and toilet are practically the same devices, and a kitchen barely big enough to allow you to prepare dinner to eat on a coffee table in that small living room." What gives? According to real estate professionals, "youre not just buying an apartment. Youre buying the city."
