Chicago and New York Chinatown's Face Different Dynamics

A Medill reports article looks at some of the differences between Chicago's Chinatown and New York's Chinatown:
In Chicago, families can choose to stay in the area in newer and more spacious homes or condos, or live in adjacent areas where there are houses within reach financially.

“New York has seen its population move out to the suburbs,” Mah said. “Manhattan is expensive and space is limited. In Chicago, in contrast, there has been a great deal of residential development over the past 10 years or so.”

That's what ran through my mind is that it's expensive to live there. I am curious to see how pay scales rate to cost of living.
