The Most Expensive Manhattan Neighborhood for Renters Is...

Rental listings site Zumper is back with a new report (warning: PDF!) that details just how much one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms cost in various New York City neighborhoods. And the winner (Or is it the loser? If you're paying a lot to live there?) is... the Flatiron District, with a 1BR median rent of $4,200/month. It is closely trailed by Tribeca ($4,195), Dumbo ($4,040), NoMad ($3,795), and Chelsea ($3,793).

For more affordable rentals, eyeball the bottom of the list, where areas like Forest Hills, Brighton Beach, Rego Park, Central Harlem, and Bed-Stuy reside.

When you look at Zumper's figures for the rest of the country, just take heart in the fact that San Francisco has higher median rents—$3,200/month for a 1BR, in contrast to New York City's $2,950.
