NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - From a hedge-fund manager who pulled in more than a billion last year to the cabby making $37,000, anything goes in NYC.

Using corporate proxy statements, news reports, city payrolls, tax-return filings and educated guesses, "New York" magazine has published the salaries you always wondered about.

The categories included Real Estate, Business, Sports, Transportation, Personal Services, Art, Fashion, Books, Music, Broadway, Dance, Food, Police and Fire, Education, Health, Religion, Nonprofit, Government, Law, Television, Movies and Media.

According to the report, Judge Judy made more than the chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs last year.

And here are a few more tidbits that may interest you:

Rapper 50 Cent made $50 million last year while the guy who asks for change on the corner of Bleecker and Broadway collected $24,000, and Diddy made a cool $36 million.

Pop-artist Andy Warhol, though dead, is still drawing in $16,226,741 a year while the NYPD's anti-graffiti coordinator, Edwin Young, brought in $149,766.

Even though it's only Giants quarterback Eli Manning's second year in the NFL, he is making $7.5 million, while Jets starter Chad Pennington threw for $9.1 million.

Sen. Hillary Clinton collects $162,100 for her government work, shy of Governor George Pataki, who pulls in $179,000, but still more than Eliot Spitzer, who is banking on $151,500. Meanwhile, Mayor Michael Bloomberg takes home only $1 (by choice).

Regis Philbin is a $20 million man, but co-host Kelly Ripa makes a mere $7 million.

The figures reflect salaries only, which in some cases includes bonuses and exercised stock options, but perks were not taken into account, the magazine said.
