I am wondering if some of you could shed some light on a question I had. I am strongly considering applying for a job in White Plains, New York (IBM). I've never been to White Plains, however, I have been to NYC twice. The ad states that White Plains is about 20 miles north of the city. One of the major obstacles I would face is the cost of living. I am used to the cost of living in Milwaukee and Los Angeles, however, I would not be able to afford it if it's too expensive. I do realize that many jobs located in high-cost cities tend to pay more, however, I am also aware that often times that increase in pay is still not enough to cover the difference. I went to one of those salary calculator websites and it states that living in White Plains, New York is roughly 25% more than living in Milwaukee. That sounds a little low to me. For giggles, I also checked the difference between Milwaukee and Brooklyn. The difference was only about $2,000, which I find VERY hard to believe. I realize that Brooklyn isn't as expensive as Manhattan, but I also know it's not in the same ballpark as Milwaukee. So..... Can anyone provide any information regarding the cost of living in White Plains, New York?
