For the uninitiated, Queens is an amazing borough with lots of great restaurants, parks, and people. Its location makes it an ideal place for those looking to save time on commuting while also offering a more tranquil version of city life. Whether you’re considering a move to the borough, or you’re already there and hoping to switch it up, don’t miss out on these affordable apartments!

Similarly to the situation in September, there is still an increasing shortage of available rental listings in Queens. In fact, these days, landlords are actually advertising listings that are only available a month from now starting in November which is highly unusual for New York. Don’t worry though. We’ve gathered up our list of favorite listings to share with you, so be sure to check them out asap before they’re gone!

1. 31-14 Crescent Street Unit 3

The third apartment on this list might just be our favorite. The current tenants are looking to sublet the apartment until November of 2022. The listing is located on the 5th floor of a walk-up and is only a few minutes walk to the nearby 46th Street/Bliss Street subway stop on the 7 train. In total, you’ll only need about 25 minutes to commute from Sunnyside to Grand Central – which makes this unit perfect for folks working in Midtown. Fun fact, there’s a new all-you-can eat Korean BBQ joint, named Honey Pig, which is just about to open up in the neighborhood!

4. 1629 Summerfield Street Unit L1

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.
