New York City law firm associates have much higher living costs than those in other cities and must content themselves with smaller living spaces as a result. The National Ass'n of Law Placement studied 20 studies and ranked New York last in terms of the buying power of a first-year salary. A 37-city study by The Associate magazine reached similar conclusions. According to the latter, a typical New York salary buys half as much as a typical salary in Houston or Charlotte, NC.
