Apartments located within walking distance to a NYC subway stop are always touted as attractive. After all, fewer steps to the train mean a shorter commute to work.
But what about the NYC Ferry?
Don’t overlook proximity to the city’s public network of ferry boats as a perk. If you’re on the hunt for a new apartment, and your office happens to be near a ferry stop, consider one of the neighborhoods featured on this map:
We at RentHop thought it’d be an opportune time to mesh the nautical with the economical. Peruse our list of ferry stops — each one with rough rent estimates and hyperlinked to listings peppered along these East River routes.
For quick access to Stuyvesant Cove, there’s — of course — Stuy-Town (Peter Cooper Village). Price: $4,690 for a 3 bed, 1 bath.
Released on a monthly basis, the RentHop Best Deal series aims to provide renters with useful market insights and a chance to identify rental gems currently available on the market. These listings are hand-selected by the team at RentHop based on a few factors, including layout, apartment size, features, and more importantly, price — such listings will be on average 10% – 30% below the median asking price of other similar-sized listings in the same neighborhood.
Note that, given the fast-paced nature of the rental market in New York, certain listings may receive applications and be taken off within days on market. If you are interested in scheduling a showing or have further questions, please make sure to submit an inquiry via the inquiry submission form located on the listing page.
