Apartment hunters in New York City let out a collective groan earlier this month when a new survey on the city’s rental market declared that the average rent of an apartment in the city has reached a whopping $3,017 per month—that’s three times the average rent of an apartment in America. Once again, it is the city’s low vacancy rates that are being blamed for this meteoric rent rise, with landlords taking advantage of the high demand to shoot up the asking prices of their apartments.

We went through our extensive database to find out apartments that have asking rents of less than $3,000 a month, and we have listed below some of our favorites (read as: the least expensive picks) from that select collection of available apartments.
