New York City can certainly be a pricey place to live. Many of the lucrative rental concessions that were given to renters in the previous year due to COVID-19 have expired and we’re seeing an increase in demand from renters who are looking to move to the city for internship opportunities, school, and work. As such, we have seen an increase in rental prices across the borough of Brooklyn.

Thankfully, Brooklyn, as always, 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 listings in our inventory list right now.
