What the 'Average' Manhattan Rental Actually Looks Like

New, 7 comments

The most recent Citi Habitats rental market report was released earlier this week, giving us a current sense of average rents for studios through three-bedrooms in Manhattan. Last year we used the numbers to figure out what an 'average' Manhattan rental actually looks like, and this Renters Week seems like a good time for an update. What do the average prices of studios through 3BRs actually get a Manhattan renter these days?

Average studio rent: $2,064/month

A search of Craigslist and StreetEasy shows up nothing for example $2,064, or even $2,065. There are, however, a number of studios for $2,050 or $2,075. Pictured, a $2,050/month studio at 64 West 71st Street.

Average 1BR rent: $2,858/month

Again, no exact matches show up for the average 1BR price, but a few listings come close. (There are also plenty of 1BRs, like this West Village one, for the less quirky ask of $2,850/month.) Above is a 1BR at 33 West End Avenue seeking $2,857/month. There's also a flex 2BR in the East 20s available for $2,859/month.

Average 2BR rent: $3,987/month

The closest match in this category is a multi-colored 2BR (shown above) at Elizabeth and Grand streets asking $3,980/month. A few dollars more than the average price gets you a 2BR, 2BA in Battery Park City or a 2BR with eat-in kitchen on Leroy Street.

Average 3BR rent: $5,249/month

There are plenty of 3BR rentals for right around the average price, like the one shown above, at Second Avenue and East 18th Street, asking $5,250/month. There's also a condop for rent in Yorkville at that price.

Average Manhattan rent: $3,856/month

This $3,860/month 2BR in Soho is average in more ways than one. There's also a 1BR, 1.5BA at Trump Place for $3,865/month and a 2BR, 2BA for $3,850/month in Lenox Hill.
