DEAR HARRIETTE: New York is an expensive place to live. There are a lot of homeless people and families that cram into a studio or onebedroom apartment because they cannot afford anything bigger, my family included.

But each time I look into these buildings in urban areas of Queens, Bronx and Brooklyn, the rent for one or two bedrooms is typically over $2,000.
