Indeed, New York City can be a pricey place to live. There’s a surge of demand from incoming renters, but a lack of supply. We’re seeing less concessions from landlords and prices are going up across the different boroughs even as the Delta strain of COVID-19 continues to rise in the United States.

Thankfully, despite of this, Brooklyn, still has affordable options remaining for renters who want to be close by to Manhattan but still far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city. Countless restaurants and gorgeous parks (McCarren Park and Prospect Park to name a few) certainly bolster this borough’s appeal. If you want quick access to the many perks NYC has to offer without breaking the bank, peruse the list below for some of the best Brooklyn rental deals this October.
