Re: Moving from HK to USA- public IB school options around NYC

NYC median salary is $57k. $190k puts you in top 5% of earners in US. Some poeple suggest that 190k is not enough. Really? Are you planning to live in Hamptons?

Re: US Gov stimulus package - who will it apply to?

We received checks. On average it was $600 per household of 2. Single person received $300. I believe this operation was done twice in the past and it applied to all taxpayers.
