Looking for Affordable Rents in Manhattan? Head to Murray Hill and Harlem

Looking for affordable rentals in Manhattan? Try Murray Hill and Harlem

If you are looking for an apartment to rent and you’re finding the rents in most Manhattan neighborhoods to be too expensive, the latest rental market report from MNS suggests that you start looking in the Murray Hill and Harlem neighborhoods for your new home. According to the report, while most of the city continues to face an inventory crunch and, therefore, a rise in apartment rents, these two neighborhoods are standing out from the rest by asking rents that are still, surprisingly, affordable and reasonable in this volatile market climate.

Report: Better Rental Deals in Manhattan, As Compared to Brooklyn

Better Rental Deals to be found in Manhattan, MNS Report Says

After finding it difficult to find a Manhattan rental that fit both their budget and their specifications, it was rather commonplace in the past for New Yorkers to take their apartment hunt to Brooklyn instead. However, these days, a reversal of this trend is happening—recent rental reports suggest that with apartments in Kings County seeing a surge in rents, many apartment hunters are realizing that they may be getting better deals by renting homes in Manhattan itself.

That Spring Bump In Manhattan Rental Prices? It's Late, But It's Here.

Studio vs 2 Bedroom Rental PricesHere at Luxury Rentals Manhattan we’ve kept an eagle-eye on the recently-calm state of the luxury rental market for you, although we'll admit that at times it was like watching paint dry. Month after month, and well into the anticipated warm-weather boom period, Manhattan rental stats remained boldly, brazenly blah -- up a healthy percentage over last year's counterparts, but inching up only a fraction of a percent month to month. Sure, we warned that a bump in Manhattan rental prices was coming -- we're a blog about Manhattan real estate, and as such know what's coming. But after months of the same warnings, a sort of a chicken little vibe became almost inescapable. As we’ve previously noted, rents barely rose month-to-month this year as landlords have remained prudent, hedging their bets on a a strong spring eliminating the last vestiges of ennui from the market. And now, as June dawns in a flurry of sticky 90 degree days, it seems like spring has finally sprung in the Manhattan luxury rental marketplace.

Kids Stuff: Was The New York Times Fair To Murray Hill?

By the admittedly pricey (some would even argue too-damn-high) standards for Manhattan rental listings, Murray Hill rental listings are among the best value per square foot in NYC real estate. Which, come to think of it, probably has something to do with why they're among the most popular rental listings on Luxury Rentals Manhattan. But while there's plenty to recommend about Murray Hill, it's also a neighborhood with some image issues. Yes, it's home to a host of appealing luxury rental buildings, from the venerable Windsor Court to new construction blockbusters like the Costas Kondylis-designed Anthem. But Murray Hill's reputation as a party-happy 'hood favored by younger twentysomethings has led it to be labeled something of an urban suburb. Which is fair only insofar as any suburb anywhere can boast the knockout Indian food on offer in Curry Hill, or a bar scene half as lively as that spanning Third Avenue in Murray Hill. A new essay in the New York Times on the post-grad scene in Murray Hill won't help that reputation much, which is no doubt fine with the twentysomethings (and thirty-, forty- and so-on-somethings) who call the neighborhood home. But is it fair?
