How expensive is it really to live in Manhattan, NY?
The only way to rent an apartment on $50,000.00 is to find a roommate or two and move into an apartment that has one less bedroom than people living thereFor example, have 2 people living in a one bedroom apt or 3 people living in a 2 bedroom apartmentSo you will need to be willing to share a bedroom with your roommateThe cheapest decent apt in a decent neighborhood would run around $1500.00 for a small studio aptAnd this would be an apt building with no door man and no elevatorIf you want something really cheap, you would have to live on the 6th floor of an apt building with no elevator on a crummy street in an unsafe neighborhoodYou are right that all classes live in Manhattan but lots of them are poor and get subsidized housing based on their income and number of family membersThey live in large housing projects where the city pays a good portion of their rentThis is why people in your situation end up living in Brooklyn or Queens.

Try lemon and lime juice on your fish, or some red pepper flakes on itKeep in mind that adding flavor doesn't automatically mean you are adding tons of salt to a dishYou can also broil your fish with some cajun spices, that sounds goodI'm making myself hungry nowGood luck!
Bread crumbs, and lemon juice on top with a little bit of sliced tomato, is my favorite.I add some butter so it all cooks together nicely but if you would rather omit it to keep the recipe healthier, you could just as easily use a butter substitute, or even olive oilJust something to give it some moisture for cooking.
