I have been in NY my whole life. I live with my family in B'klyn and I'm in my 30's. Our rent is under $1,000 b/c it's a low income apartment building, but our apt is a huge compared to most NYC apts. All the 5 boroughs have affordable apartments if you look hard enough and many of my friends are in their late 20's/early 30's and live alone or with roommates.

There are some lovely neighborhoods in the Bronx that are affordable, so I don't know what Wisdom is talking about.

I would LOVE not to have a roommate in my 30's but it's a sacrifice you have to make if you want to live in a decent neighborhood w/o spending over 35-40% of your income. I know dozens of people doing it. You gotta do what you gotta do.
