cha-ching

I thought this article was interesting. It talks about the 10 most expensive cities to live in in the United States.

You want to know which cities made the list? Read the article and click on the link that lets you go to the picture tour of these places.... nah, you don't have to. I'll tell ya.

The top two should be obvious. but here's the list anyway:

10. Washington D.C.
9. Boston, MA
8. Houston, TX
7. White Plains, NY
6. Chicago, IL
5. San Francisco, CA
4. Honolulu, HI
3. Miami, FL
2. Los Angeles, CA
1. New York, NY

heh. having lived in 3,9, and 10, and having spent time in 1 and 5, i can believe this.

One question: White Plains???

d: I want to liv close enough to a big city to be able to do stuff but far enough away so that it's peaceful.

lccb: having only been through Chigago O'Hare, I can't say how expensive it is or not but it doesn't surprise me that it's up there. I thought Boston would be higher. And I live close enough to that city. I think the list is pretty accurate.

AG: Yeah, White Plains. Big City "suburb" of NYC. Been there. Unimpressed.

AG: Have you really lived in all those cities? You're quite the traveler. :)

Green: I would have thought Boston to be higher.

Was there any background info about what factors were considered in the cost-of-living (i.e. type of travel used in the city)? Just curious.
