Where can you afford to live in the city? Here's a visually pleasing way to find out where your paycheck will allow you to live in the five boroughs. According to this map from Envisioning Development, the fat cats are on the Upper East Side, where the median income in 2006 was $178,000. Compare that to the neighboring East Harlem, where the median income that year was $29,200. There are even rent sliders to tell you what you could afford in each neighborhood, and what percentage of that neighborhood's population can afford, say, a one-bedroom for $954. And you can compare all the boroughs as a whole.
