Brooklyn is the second most expensive place to live in the United States. This will surprise no one who lives in Carroll Gardens:
The Council for Community and Economic Research recently measured the cost of the professional standard of living in 307 urban areas, and for the 5th year in a row, found Brooklyn as the second most expensive city to live in in the United States, Yahoo News reports.
I love it here. But it is really expensive to live in this area, especially for young families.
