NYTimes: Down and Out in San Francisco, on $117,000 a Year http://tinyurl.com/ya3x5ejx > A family of four earning $117,000 a year is now classified as low income in > the San Francisco area. This threshold, used to determine eligibility for > federal housing assistance, is the highest in the nation — and no surprise. > > Once upon a time in the American West, the most exclusive places — Sun > Valley, Aspen, Lake Tahoe, the San Juan Islands in Washington State — were > known as “golden ghettos,” an imperfect term used by trendy demographers. > > But now the entire West Coast, from San Diego to Vancouver, British Columbia, > is a string of gilded megalopolises. These are the tomorrow cities, the tech > cities, the cities of the young and educated. And each of them is struggling > with a prosperity crisis that threatens the very nature of living there.
