Manhattan Listings Under $2,350 in January 2024

Renters know that Manhattan is expensive. While the median price for an apartment in the borough decreased to $4,275 this month, those who wish to rent in popular neighborhoods must still prove ready to dig into their pockets. No matter the time of year a renter is looking for a Manhattan apartment, they must remain vigilant if they wish to find a deal.

With winter underway, those who are willing to brave the cold and move at this time of year may secure lower rental prices. However, with less inventory on the market, they may need to extend their search process to find an apartment that fits their desired criteria. The following units offer laundry facilities, stainless steel appliances, and proximity to the subway.
