"Cost of Living in Noe:. . . A 2 bedroom apt averages $4742."

That is astonishing. I live in a quiet neighborhood in the Chicago North Shore 'burb of Evanston, IL, in a 2BR duplex with a DW, giant dining room, and a big backyard, and literally I pay a quarter of that - meaning that I'd have to make FOUR TIMES what I do now to live a comparable life in SF. Holy mackerel. Talk about a reality check!
