MIDDLE AMERICA GETS RECOGNITION FROM THE NY TIMES!



The New York Times Magazine has actually done a cool story on what the median family income in America, $54,400, gets you in different parts of the country. The Alvarez's in the Bronx rent a 3-bedroom apartment for $900 a month, and own one 1996-issued car, while the Oxfords from Johnston City, Illinois bought their 4-bedroom house for $15,000 in 1980, and have equipped it with a swimming pool and hot tub. They also own two cars, a 2002 Saturn and a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck. Being from New York City, I'm not one to spurn the advantages that big city living offers, but I have to admit, a back yard with a swimming pool would be just heavenly, and in New York City only multi-millionaires with penthouses can come close.
