16% of gross. If you're paying for than 25% of your gross income in rent there is a problem, or you're RIGHT out of college or something. JM(not)HO. In expensive areas, I'd still try to keep my home mortgage under 40% of gross income

Why? Either you don't have a lot of "other" expenses or you make a shit ton and just don't care? When I used to work in banking in NYC and these analysts tell me how much they spend living in Manhattan because want to experience the night life and getting hammered every night because they make six figures. It's sounded absolutely foolish.

25% after tax - Stamford, CT. Not as bad as NYC but still pretty expensive.

Also ~25% after tax. NYC adjacent with a good commute to work in NYC. The city is fucking expensive. I'd take a 10% pay hit to work elsewhere, and I'm from here. I'd make half of the hit up in lower taxes and another 100% up in lower rent.
