New, 6 comments

ROCKAWAYS—There will be a screening of "The Bungalows of Rockaway" followed by a discussion at The Anthology Film Archives (Monday, June 11 at 6:30p). The documentary portrays almost a century's worth of history of the summer getaway structures, which have decreased in number from 7,000 in the 1930s to around 500 today.

MANHATTAN—MNS released its April monthly rental report that included the expected info on rising rents in the city and this illuminating example based on average rents around Manhattan.
Renters due for renewals on two-year leases may want to look for other options. Here’s how the annual rent increases will break down: 14% for studios ($300); 12% for one-bedroom units ($350); and 15% ($600) for two-bedrooms.Oof!
