Easy solution: Don't get an apartment on the Upper East Side if you can't afford it. Live in the Bronx or Queens.

Too many of us are still living in la-la land.

The article refers to annual income compared to monthly rent. I think you're referring to Portland's monthly income requirement being 3x rent. At that ratio, annual Portland income requirement is not so far off at 36x rent.
