A Week In New York City On A $250,000 Income

9 a.m. — My boyfriend, S., calls as I’m finishing up — he has a couple weeks off before starting a new job, so he’s at home today, too. I walk over to his apartment, and we decide to walk to get a quick breakfast. I don’t have much on my plate yet work-wise, so I can just answer emails that come in from my phone. We head over to Daily Provisions (a favorite) for an indulgent breakfast and get bacon, egg, and cheeses and two crullers (maple and strawberry) to share with an iced coffee. S. pays, but the total feels like a lot, so I Venmo him $16.50. $16.50
