The study, by the real estate website StreetEasy, defined “affordable” homes as those listings that people could buy if they earn the city’s median annual income of $70,406, and save 10 percent of their gross income for 10 years. By these metrics, affordable homes in NYC cost a median of $352,780, factoring in a 20 percent down payment and other maintenance fees, according to the study.
