Generally in my personal experience, if an analyst is turning comments at a very late hour the night of (or early morning before) a meeting that the MD needs to go to, the analyst or whoever, when the books are finished, would have them printed and shipped directly to the MDs home so he/she can review and have copies ready to go straight to a meeting from his/her home. This generally requires disclosing the MD's home address to the analyst in order for them to have the books delivered.

Probably to flex. Or guys that have been at the firm since "calling someone on their home phone" was a thing.

My MD in Chicago for a BB rents a really nice apartment and has vacation homes around the US. He recently sold his house in the burbs and is planning to move upon retirement and wanted to enjoy the city for a bit.

I think I did this right

I'm NY - most were in New Jersey, former group head had a nice place in UES and two MDs were in UWS. Think one was in Battery Park City as well.

Most senior people I know of live in:


Long Island

New Jersey

Went to visit my buddy in Westchester and it seemed like you can throw a penny in the air and it'll land on an employee high up in the food chain of their respective company.

For Chicago, Winnetka is popular among seniors. Though it is cheap enough to get a family sized condo in the loop/near north/Gold Coast which is all in the city. 

Co-ops are much less common here than in NYC, so most buildings only charge standard building amenity or  HOA fees which are much, much lower than co-op fees.

Interesting. I wasn't aware of the tax benefit. It seems IL has higher tax too

CHItizen, what's your opinion? Comment below:

In Chicago, most senior guys with families seemed to live in the nicer burbs (Winnetka / Glencoe / River Forest / Hinsdale / etc.), though a couple lived in or around Lincoln Park. If you go on Redfin and plug in these areas and set the filter to $2-5mm, I'm sure that'll give you a decent idea of what type of house they have.

I can't actually think of any MD's I worked with that didn't have families, but I'm sure there are some rich bachelor MD's living in nice high rises in River North / West Loop too.

Personally, sr director at a kinda-big tech company - Sausalito

 VP above me - Sea cliff, SF

Director under me - SOMA loft/condo (pretty young though, early thirties)

MD at old bank (analysts together) - Palo Alto (including the entire menlo park, atherton, los altos area under Palo Alto)

Partner @ VC fund -  Palo Alto

the CEO - Palo Alto

CEO of startup - a marina hill

Note that we are all in our late thirties/early forties+. Ask us this question like 5-10 years ago, and it would have been all SF. As we got older, and as SF kinda went into the dump (maybe it was always like this and it just didn't matter to us when we were 28 and had no families), we all slowly moved away. It'll always be home though, and I'll never stop loving it. (maybe if they kick out chesa and breed follows through on her rhetoric it'll be clean enough to move my family back to)

NYC perspective here. Split my time between 2 apartments.

I own an apt in Gramercy (my main apartment), and the other (sublet) is within walking distance from my office.

Most of the time, I'm in my Gramercy apt, but when it gets really busy at the office, I like to just wake up and walk to work.

Logistics for women in Gramercy is excellent, and as any man of culture will inform you, logistics is crucial for the Bang.

I'm in my mid-thirties. No wife or children.

Lol this seems like a terrible use of money. Just take a cab to your Gramercy apt
