“THE COST OF LIVING” depicts the lives of three families who call the greater Flushing, Queens area their home. As they navigate the turbulent waters of economic hardship, they are also confronted with the ever-increasing cost of living in their once-affordable neighborhood.
Historically, the outer boroughs of New York City have long been sanctuaries for hardworking communities. However, the working-class fabric that defines Flushing, Queens, is currently facing a perilous threat due to the rapid influx of exclusive luxury housing catering solely to the global elite. Regrettably, this trend is accompanied by a scarcity of affordable housing options, leaving the local working-class community vulnerable and marginalized. The repercussions of this are felt keenly by the working class, as the rising cost of living puts them on the precipice of financial vulnerability.
