A video on TikTok is going viral because it is reportedly showing how ridiculous the price of groceries has gotten in New York City.

How Expensive Is It to Live in New York?

This is New York and if you live in The Empire States then you know by now that it's expensive to live here. Just how expensive is it compared to other states?

According to Rent Cafe, in 2022, New York State's cost of living was 55% higher than the rest of the country. They report that rent is 148% higher, healthcare is 3% higher, public transportation is 9% higher and goods and services are about 16% higher.

Food is an astonishing 21% more expensive. It's not clear if that is calculated from dining out, buying groceries or both. I have to assume that since the recent rise in supply chain issues, that cost has gotten significantly higher. Especially in New York City.
