I would've thought NY would be higher. CT doesn't surprise me much but NY obviously has NYC and then a lot of the other counties in the state have a lot of big names like Clintons, Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren, etc.

I once saw Ralph drive past me as I crossed the street in the town I work in :mrkrabs:

Hmm, let's see.

Because inflation of property values and other COL expenses means 70K probably doesn't go as far there as it would in many of the poorer states?

Because unlike much of the North or the South, you guys happen to have both miserable summers AND winters?

Because the DMV is objectively the most unattractive (in terms of good looking men and women) region in the US?

Pick one.
