Rental prices still remain high across the five boroughs this month, Brooklyn included. The borough features many neighborhoods with unique communities, local establishments, and apartment styles, and renters flock to Brooklyn to evade Manhattan’s pricing and to seize generously-sized units.
This month, the average rental price for a one-bedroom in New York City increased to $3,995, indicating the end of the slower winter rental season. As activity will begin to pick up throughout the Spring and ramp up through the Summer, renters still have opportunities to score lower-priced apartments. This month, renters can find units with exciting features like private outdoor space, stainless steel dishwashers, and in-unit laundry.
