There are people out there who tell you flat out you need at least $200k to live a middle class lifestyle in Manhattan.

That probably includes hefty condo fees, eating out a lot, taking taxis, nifty entertainment, travel, and maybe even staff.

But as they say, it depends on your lifestyle. Many can downsize a bit and still be happy--especially to the beach or the mountains. But to each his own.

It's your retirement. Pick what works for you.
