Where to Rent in New York City Right Now

Looking for a new apartment in NYC? Look no further

View as Map

The age-old question: where do I rent an apartment in New York City? Older options abound, but new buildings debut on the rental market just about every week. For this heatmap of where to rent right now, Curbed looked at the buzziest rentals of the past six months or so, mapping only those that have more than one unit available at this very second. (That said, the new buildings with no availability might well be popular for a reason and are worth keeping an eye on.) Did we miss any? Let us know.

70 Pine St
New York, NY 10270
Earlier this year, apartments at this long-closed Art Deco landmark became available to renters, with prices that are predictably on the higher end. The units currently available on StreetEasy range from a $2,800 studio to an $8,500 three-bedroom. As part of the building's conversion from office to rentals, developer Rose Associates added a swanky spa/fitness center, ground-floor retail, and a restaurant by Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield (though the opening date on that last one is TBD).

2. The Grove

30-40 21st St
Long Island City, NY 11102
One of the developments bringing more than 60 units to Astoria is the Grove, located on 21st Street about three blocks from the waterfront. The building, which has been in the works since 2013, is developed by Tsilo Group and designed by TKA Studio; it's located on the site of a former lumberyard, which (according to the press release) influenced the building's design in the placement of natural maple floors in each apartment. There are currently seven units available, ranging from $2,550 to $3,700.

3. Rose Modern

501 E 74th St

Apartments at the Golden Asset-developed building range in size from studios to three-bedrooms, including four penthouses, and most units feature private balconies as well. Amenities in the Stephen B. Jacobs Group-designed building include two common roofdecks, a resident's lounge that includes a gourmet kitchen, co-working spaces, a yoga and dance studio, and a children's play room. Available units range from a $3,000 studio to a $6,650 two-bedroom.

300 Coles St
Jersey City, NJ 07310
The developer of this Jersey City rental, Manhattan Building Company, is hoping that the relatively lower prices (compared to Manhattan and Brooklyn) and the amenities will lure residents across the river. Its 232 apartments, which began leasing in February, range from studios to three-bedrooms with prices starting at $2,495 per month. (And we're not talking small studios, either: the smallest apartments measure 885 square feet.)

One-bedrooms ask from the low $3,000s, two-bedrooms from the low $5,000s, and the development's four townhouses are asking upwards of $8,000 per month.

6. Via 57 West "Courtscraper"

Copy Link
The unique shape of Bjarke Ingels's west side tetrahedron necessitated 178 different floorplans for the 709-apartment building. Because of the variety of floorplans, developer Durst released pricing info ahead of its February rental listings by average cost per unit size. That breaks down as follows: on average, studios ask $2,770, one-bedrooms ask $3,880, two-bedrooms ask $6,500, and three-bedrooms ask $11,000. The average ask for a four-bedroom hovers at $16,500 per month.
