The best: With a median income of $31,703, a low crime rate and 14% population between the age of 25 to 34, New York is a welcoming haven for young people. But it seems like only a very specific class of citizen could afford to live there easily. Just look at the median rent, which is $1,157 per month or $13,884 a year, or around half the after-tax income of someone making the median salary. Greenpoint in particular is also highly educated, with 70% of the population having some college or an associate degree under their belt. It’s also young, with 32% in the 25 to 34 age range, and for Brooklyn, it’s pretty white (77.68% Caucasian — whoops). Plus the neighborhood has a shockingly high ($1,294 per month) median rent, 148% the national average and nearly 112% the NYC average. But it does have a median income of $62,470, around 18.39% above the comparable national rate … so, there’s that.

in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese
