2. New York City

Manhattan and Brooklyn make New York City one of the country's most expensive cities to live. If you plan on moving to the Big Apple, choose your neighborhood and budget wisely. Renting an apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side can set you back $20,000 per month. A rental apartment in Brooklyn, though cheaper, is still no bargain at $2,500 a month.

Food costs are high, whether eating out or buying groceries. You'll find lots of great free things to do in this city, but the theatre and even movie tickets are expensive. New York is not a cheap place to live, but it's one of the world's greatest cities.
