Tampa is really over crowded. The roads are not meant to accommodate this many people. Rent and housing is very expensive. Food is expensive and wages are low. All in all Tampa is an over priced hot mess.

Rent in NY is very high, in Manhattan (city) a studio is about $1800 1br $2200+ In Brooklyn (1 if the 5 boroughs) a studio is about $1000+ 1br $1700+ 2br $2300+

All insurance are high, car insurance runs about $300-$400 monthly for experienced drivers

Food I believe runs the same everywhere, but for my 2 person (my 7 yr old daughter and I) household I spend about $80 weekly

Hi,

I am considering moving to NYC with my wife and 2 years old daughter.

How much does it cost for living there including rent, food, insurance and any other expenses.

Thank you.

I grew up in Tampa as well as being born their in 1966. The Tampa Bay area has gone through immense amounts of change since my childhood. Tampa has been constantly growing. Overall I think life in the Tampa Bay Area is quite average for an American metro. Average demographics, average wealth, average schools, average hospitals(their are some really good ones though) average infrastructure (Tampa IA is the best IA I have been in). Expanding on education Public Schools are mediocre and but noticeably better in the new areas and I will say we have a really good and cheap University USF.The Tampa Area is not poor nor rich. However their is a very large income gap in some places especially in Pinellas county. The place I would recommend to live is Riverview/Lithia area or New Tampa/Wesley Chapel. In the wider Bay Area Manatee and Sarasota counties have many and very large suburbs such as Lakewood Ranch that are really nice. I have been noticing much revival in Downtown Tampa and the West Brandon area is building up with tons of new apartments and shops. Riverview where I live has been exploding. They just built a very nice hospital in February (much needed) and have broke ground on a 14 screen theater in Riverview. Hillsborough County I would say in the past 40 years has unbelievably developed most notably the 2000's in my area(Riverview). I have lived in several places such as Dallas, Atlanta, Ft.Luaderdale and Ocala and I would say the Tampa Area is my favorite.

Not sure why so many ppl are saying there is so much crime. There are plenty of good areas that may look bad just because they're older areas. Rent is going up; two years ago a one bedroom could be around 650-750, now those same ones are closer to 900. Areas right next to USF, areas in South Tampa near Gandy & Dale Mabry, and places off Martin Luther King & Gandy (technically in Saint Pete, but very close to Tampa) are cheaper & safe!
#Blake on Nov 03, 2015 :
not worth living in Tampa. Crapy place, much crime, to expensive
#glen on Oct 11, 2015 :
Food prices very high, for example, expect to pay seven to nine dollars a pound for lunch meats.Also rent prices average $1000.00 a month for decent area, any cheaper is in crime area.
