Manhattan, or are you willing to live in some place like LIC, the Bronx, or Jersey even?

Assuming you don't have to be in Manhattan proper, you could probably start being comfortable-ish at around $250k pretax I would say. You'll have to rent your whole life but you could live middle class lifestyles and be able to save a bit for retirement.

$250k pretax, let's say about $150k post tax. Save/invest $50+k of that a year. Spend $50+k on rent and utilities. Remainder is flexible.

$400k

$400-$500k, joint, post-tax, for Manhattan

My firm is being sued for discrimination, and I’m not sure what to make of it (and no one has really addressed this yet from the leadership).
