In US, New York City, I believe
Santa Fe, New Mexico is very expensive as well, while I was there, the paper had stories of lawyers who loved the area, moved there, and had to share a house in order to afford it.
Asheville, North Carolina is extremely overpriced for what it has to offer, it' about 10 years of less behind Santa Fe.  All 3 cities are on the top ten of art destinations.
I imagine that any of the top 10 art destinations are very expensive places to live.
I know that for close to a decade Asheville attracted a lot of hippie artists, but once they had the  name, they ran the hippies off. It is also called the "Little San Franciso" of the south because of the gay population. We know that the gay population has more discretionary income.

I suppose it would be any city that you were in if you were not making enough money to live in that city. On the serious side of this, it cost as much a week to park a car in New York city as some people earn in lots of cities !
