New York City Rent Prices By Borough And Neighborhood

While New York City is known for being an expensive place to live in general, housing prices vary by borough and can even be vastly different from one neighborhood to the next.

The average rent in a Manhattan neighborhood known for trendy bars and shops will almost certainly be higher than in a family-friendly Staten Island neighborhood. Many factors, such as square footage, distance to public transportation, and overall location, greatly affect how expensive a neighborhood is.
