      You had better believe that a salary of $410K annually in NYC would be considered upper middle-class at best.  A person in his position will be expected to do a fair amount of entertaining as part of the job, which will demand a certain home residence, which will be expensive in Manhattan.  It is very easy to wind up paying over $10K per month in housing expenses in one lives in Manhattan, which would mean that $410K salary balances exactly against a historic earnings-to-monthly housing expense ratio.  If he happened to own a car in Manhattan (not recommended), that would add at least 50% to that number just to garage the vehicle.
