Question Need help with ROL

In short question is : New York OR not NY.

I have couple interviews here and there mostly in community programs. Some of them are in NY city (Bronx) and I have a concern. I have a wife and a son (both are dependents and my wife can't work for a while). So if I end up in NY.... how tough is it gonna be to live with income 3K/month for a family of 3? I like these programs in NY more than some in other areas. Should I choose better place for training over better life quality or the opposite? What would you choose?

Thanks for your opinion.

To answer your question. First u must know the average cost of living esp housing in that area of NY. Know also about whether program covers for all your health insurance or u have to pay some for your family and yourself. Know that depending on the program not everybody goes home with 3000/month. It can be lower if u pay high insurance etc. also know your priorities and what sort of life u want to live in terms of expenditure. All these should allow u to make informed decision.
