If you live in the five boroughs, your share of the city's staggering debt is north of seven-grand, which works out to a total of $59 billion.
"By any commonly accepted measure, New York City ranks above its peers in the amount of debt shouldered by city residents and the city's economy."
New York's per capita debt load of $7,153 -- the highest in the nation -- is up 55% over the last eight years, reports the Daily News. Philly is a distant second at $4,771 a head.
Last year New Yorkers spent $4.86 billion just to cover the interest, a figure expected to rise $8.1 billion in the next decade.
The massive debt load is the result of money borrowed mostly for the construction and maintenance of buildings, parks and schools.
