Zumper's monthly National Rent Report for March just came out, and apparently NoMad is now the priciest New York City neighborhood in which to rent, with the average one-bedroom going for—deeeeep breath—$4,270. Last month's leader, Tribeca, fell into a tie for second place with Flatiron ($4,200), while the neighborhoods that saw the biggest rise in prices were Bayside (up 8.6 percent to $1,900), Bushwick (up 7.7 percent to $2,100), and Windsor Terrace (up 7.4 percent to $2,330). Of the 60 neighborhoods listed, the cheapest was Jackson Heights, followed by Riverdale and Crown Heights. As for the national statistics, New York remains the second most expensive city, trailing San Francisco once again. Boston is a distant third.
