Do politicians get a break on their rent? Not according to their landlords, and the estimated market rents of their apartments are, as we've come to expect from boldfaced names living in Manhattan, on the high end. Anthony Weiner and wife Huma Abedin probably pay somewhere around $13,000/month for their rental at 254 Park Avenue South. Ed Koch rented a market-rate 2BR at 2 Fifth Avenue. Mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis probably pays somewhere around $30,000 to $35,000 per month for the apartment he's rented at 63rd Street and Fifth Avenue for the past 25 years. [NYT]
