A new report maps out some of the city’s priciest neighborhoods for one-bedrooms


Last week, we learned that Manhattan currently ranks as the most expensive place to rent in the country while Brooklyn is in fourth place—which is not surprising. Now, a new Zumper report details what neighborhoods in both boroughs, along with the Bronx, were the most expensive to rent one-bedrooms in June.

The report looked at June median one-bedroom rents for 64 neighborhoods in parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.

Chelsea tops the list in Manhattan with one-bedroom median rents at $4,100/month, followed by the Garment District, the West Village, Greenwich Village, and Tribeca. The least expensive are Washington Heights at $1,790/month and East Harlem at $2,100/month.

As far as Brooklyn goes, the most expensive neighborhood is Dumbo, with one-bedroom rents going for $3,930/month, followed by Downtown Brooklyn at $3,535/month, and Vinegar Hill at $3,500. Those with the lowest rents in the borough include Canarsie at $1,500/month and Borough Park at $1,600/month.

The map only delves into certain parts of the Bronx, but shows that Mott Haven is the most expensive neighborhood with rents at $1,950/month, followed by Highbridge at $1,750/month, and both Port Morris and Concourse Village at $1,700/month. Lower rents can be found in Morrisania and Woodstock, both at $1,550/month.

Last month, Zumper found that NYC one-bedroom rents hit an all-time high, with median rents across the boroughs reaching $2,980/month.
