  • Hi, everyone.

  • Today we'll be talking about everyday American culture in the U.

  • S.

  • Last time we talked about American supermarkets and how their unique this time, we're going to look at how much it actually costs to live in New York City.

  • When you think about America, perhaps one of the first things that might come to mind is the bright lights and the fast pace of the big city, for sure.

  • In New York City, everyone who visits wants to go to the big tourist locations.

  • Central Park, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty.

  • But how much does it actually cost to live there?

  • In this video, we're going to talk about the actual living costs of New York City.

  • Let's start with the most basic thing.

  • You need to live in New York, an apartment without an apartment.

  • You can't really say you live in New York City, but if you want to live in the city, you should be prepared to live in a small space.

  • More than half of the apartments in New York City are 700 square feet or smaller.

  • That's about 65 square meters.

  • This could be for a studio apartment, which has no walls between the kitchen and the bedroom.

  • Or it could be a one bedroom apartment, which does have a separate bedroom.

  • These kinds of places cost on average $1890 or $2100 respectively.

  • So expect to pay a pretty high price if you want to live in the city.

  • But keep in mind that a separate payment is required for heat and water in your apartment.

  • For an average apartment about 915 square feet in New York City, about $145 is required for utility bills.

  • This covers heating, electricity, water and garbage for Internet and phone.

  • However, that's a totally separate payment.

  • One of the best things about living in New York City is how convenient things are if you walk down the street, you can quickly find a coffee shop, a bookstore or a supermarket.

  • Because of this, people who live there rarely have cars.

  • It's quite expensive to keep one in the city.

  • Instead, people use public transportation like buses or the subway.

  • For a monthly transit passed, you can expect to pay about $120.

  • And if you want to use a taxi, fares started $2.50.

  • New York City is known for its wide variety of delicious restaurants.

  • You confined food from all over the world.

  • You can get anything from a food cart hot dog to an expensive steak dinner in New York City.

  • Because of this wide variety, however, it's hard to determine a specific average for a meal.

  • When living in New York City, you can imagine going to concerts, shows, baseball games and so on.

  • But the cost of these can get pretty pricey.

  • If you want to see the latest film in New York City, you can expect to pay about $15 per ticket.

  • If you want to do something a little more exciting and check out a Yankees baseball game, for example, it'll cost you about $50 a ticket.

  • And if you want to check out Broadway and see one of the latest shows, you can expect to pay about a couple $100 for the best seats.

  • There are lots of ways to determine the cost of living in New York City, but these are just a couple important aspects.

  • So how does New York City compared to big cities in your country?

  • What are some things that are different?
