Featuring a wide array of cuisines, activities, and communities, Queens is a popular borough that welcomes many renters each month. With neighborhoods like Astoria and Long Island City close to Manhattan, some people move here for the lower-priced rents and the easy commute.
The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment across New York City remained at $3,995 this month, showing signs of a plateauing market heading into the Winter season. While rental prices may drop as the weather gets colder and fewer potential renters decide to move, prices could also increase if inventory decreases. Either way, those looking to capitalize on lower rental prices than during the summer season can still expect to find deals across the borough. The following listings below $2,400 offer amenities like proximity to subway lines, modern finishes, and oversized windows.
