The Ramen Index

Ramen in Greenpoint is 4 for a dollar, supposedly on special (down from 3 for a dollar! bargain!). Ramen at Sunac is 39 cents, which is like 2.5 for a dollar.

In college in Boston, ramen was 5 for a dollar. I moved back to Providence for a few months, and it was 8 for a dollar. When I moved to Chelsea, it was 3 for a dollar, but I only stayed a few months in an apartment share with a 60-yr-old struggling actress. When I moved to Meserole (Street) in 1999, ramen at the Key Foods on Grand was 5 for a dollar.

Now that I’ve finished my biography of noodles, I need your data points. How much are your noodles?

  1. Ramen in the Midwest is 5 for a dollar at Ye Olde Kroger. I guess the midwest economy has inflated to match New York’s!
