Brooklyn Deals: Listings at $3500 and Below in December

New York City can certainly be a pricey place to live. There’s always a surge of demand from incoming renters, but a lack of supply. However, due to seasonality and also the new Omicron strain of COVID-19, we’re now seeing demand from renters drop slightly week-over-week. While this hasn’t drastically impacted the number of concessions offered by landlords, we anticipate that certain buildings may start offering more lucrative deals to attract renters.

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 deals this December.
