Mapping the Median Rents in New York City Neighborhoods

New, 33 comments

Listings website Zumper has crunched the numbers and once again come up with the median rents for a handful of New York City neighborhoods in the month of October. (Click on the infographic to make it big.) Third-quarter market reports documented a "plateau" in Manhattan's rents as Brooklyn's continue to rise, but that news is simply not going to assuage all those Tribeca residents with giant holes in their wallets. That area, home to the city's priciest one-bedroom rentals at $3,995/month, is closely trailed by the West Village ($3,600), the Garment District ($3,595), and Chelsea ($3,575). Guess everyone should be moving to Queens?

Two-bedroom rental rates follow a similar trend, but this time Battery Park City leads the pack at $6,095/month, followed by Tribeca (5,850), Chelsea ($5,175), and the Financial District ($4,800). In apartments of this size, there are a few surprises—the Upper East Side ends up being more affordable than Long Island City, and the East Village is about 35% cheaper than Brooklyn Heights.

How do your rents stack up to the median? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
