Work­ing as a free­lance writer, she notes that she will make less than $24,000 a year. That salary would barely cover monthly rent, let alone the needs of a soon-to-be sin­gle mother, which is part of the rea­son she moves up­state.

Lo­ca­tion: Green­point, Brook­lyn (In­dia Street) Char­ac­ter: Han­nah Hor­vath Room­mates: At dif­fer­ent points — Marnie Michaels, Adam Sack­ler and Eli­jah Krantz Jobs: Un­em­ployed, barista, GQ writer, teacher, free­lance jour­nal­ist Show’s claimed cost: Rent not spec­i­fied Es­ti­mated real-life cost: $2,200 to $3,000 per month for a two-bed­room
