Earlier this year we told you how much New Yorkers shelled out on rent in January, and now it's time to check back in. Real-estate listing site Zumper pulled median prices for one-bedrooms across Manhattan and Brooklyn that were put on the market last month. Surprise, surprise: Tribeca is still the most expensive 'hood on the island, with the average one-bedroom rent listed in March reaching at $4,210 (compare to $4,000 in January). As for Brooklyn? At $4,075 a month, Dumbo abodes are practically reaching that level.
If you're looking for a (relative) deal in Manhattan, head to the Lower East Side ($2,550) and the Upper East Side ($2,575). The most affordable rents to be had in Kings County are in the southeastern part of the borough, where you can still score a one-bedroom for less than $1,500 in certain areas (Crown Heights, Sunset Park, Flatbush, etc).
