Looking for advice on what day-to-day living is like if you're in the middle class and living in Manhattan. I know, a lot of people will tell me to not bother and just consider Brooklyn, Queens or New Jersey, but if I really wanted to make it work on what I think is a middle class salary ($60,000-$70,000) how do you do that? Seeking tips, tricks, hacks, and practical advice from people who've lived in Manhattan without being a kazillionaire. Is it even possible as a normal person?
