Painted Ladies of San Francisco

Living in the Bay Area leaves one with something of a skewed notion of what it means to live a middle class life.

The median home price in San Francisco was over $840,000 in 2015 and the median monthly rent for a 2 bedroom apartment sits at $4,650. Food costs are about 23% higher, gas 37% higher, and healthcare 20% higher than the national average.

Check it out, if you dare.
