The New York City rental market sizzled with activity this summer, where the median rental price for one-bedroom apartments across the city consistently surpassed $4,000. Renters who felt the constraints of an unaffordable and expensive scene also saw climbing prices across boroughs like Brooklyn.

This month, the average rental price for a one-bedroom New York City apartment reigns in at $4,095, which still takes a toll on most renter’s wallets. However, over 2,000 apartments in Brooklyn are under that price point, with many offering storage spaces, $0 security deposits, and stainless steel appliances.
