[ - ] S/O UMC: What is minimum HHI in Manhattan below 96th street to send one child to private school. We are not big spenders (per last thread, we are happy with Y camp, don't go out a lot, don't have a nanny). I think it could be done for 300 HHI, am I wrong? What about 250 HHI? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I will never rent again in this lifetime, but I have learned to put everything in writing and take dozens and dozens of photographs of the condition of the place upon moving out, complete with date stamps.
