It's doable, you just have to be smart with money if you're working with one salary.

$110k would be around $6800/month after tax.

Apartments around those areas are around $600/wk so a little more than $2400/month which would give you slightly over $4k/month for bills, groceries, expenses etc.

Best of luck!
