The Best and Worst NYC Neighborhoods for Renting Right Now

New, 9 comments

As part of its Q2 analysis of rents across U.S. cities, listings site Lovely has put together an infographic showing the median rents across different New York City neighborhoods in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and even the Bronx. (Sorry, Staten Island.) And depending on where you live, the news it bears might not be so lovely. With a citywide median rent of $3,175/month, the chart lists the neighborhoods in order from most expensive to least expensive.

What tops the list? Tribeca, of course, with a median rent of about $5k per month. The next most expensive areas, according to Lovely's stats, are Battery Park City, Union Square, the Meatpacking District, and Dumbo. As for the cheaper areas, move to Jamaica if you want to pay closer to $1,500/month. Other relatively affordable neighborhoods are Riverdale, Forest Hills, Washington Heights, and Long Island City.
