THE BRONX - A new study reveals that the average American thinks $100,000 per year is an ideal salary.

News 12 The Bronx hit the streets to find out how much money people in the borough think the ideal salary is.

Some residents said the ideal is $200,000 because of taxes and the cost of living in New York.

Another resident said only $60,000 is ideal--just enough for a family, a small house, and a one vacation a year.
