It seems like housing in Brooklyn, New York isn’t even affordable for superheroes. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, released in 2015, Captain America and Falcon had the following conversation:
SAM WILSON AKA FALCON: You find a place in Brooklyn yet?
STEVE ROGERS AKA CAPTAIN AMERICA: I don’t think I can afford a place in Brooklyn.
This year, Brooklyn has been declared “the most unaffordable housing market in America.” Statistics declare that a Brooklyn household that brings in an income of $833 a week (Brooklyn’s reported median household income according to the New York Daily News) would have to spend 98% of that income to be able to live in a median priced house in Brooklyn.
