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!

Demand for housing on the market is quickly rising due to the fact that many renters are being priced out of their current apartments as a result of expiring leases with generous COVID-19 rental concessions. Not to mention, the typical crowd of renters looking to move into the city for summer internships, school, and job opportunities. Unfortunately, we are still seeing a shortage of available Queens rental listings. 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!
