Brooklyn Listings Under $2,300 in December 2022

Posted on December 01, 2022 4:47 pm

While the New York City rental market breathes ever so slightly, rental prices still remain high across the boroughs. Brooklyn is not exempt from climbing prices, but can offer units below the median going rate. With many neighborhoods that boast their unique communities, local establishments, and apartment styles, renters flock to the borough to evade Manhattan pricing and seize generously-sized units.

This month, the average rental price for a one-bedroom New York City apartment held steady at $3,995, indicating a cooling market that may continue to offer opportunities for renters looking to find a deal. While housing is still expensive, nearly 2,000 apartments in Brooklyn fall under that price point, providing renters with units that still offer exciting features like stainless steel dishwashers, plenty of sunlight, and proximity to local favorites and subway lines.
