Loan repayment during residency

I was wondering if any residents in cities like Boston, Philly, San Francisco, etc. could comment about whether they are able to make any substantial loan payments during residency. I know that some of these programs pay higher salaries, but it doesn't seem to compensate for the difference in cost of living (say compared with some midwestern cities).
