When it comes to finding an apartment in New York, location is everything. Turns out, that by modifying that location just slightly you can end up saving a lot of money.
The number crunchers at Renthop have once again released a map this year showing the median one-bedroom rent prices off of every subway stop in the city. In a few areas, you can see drastic price drops between just one stop.
For instance, if a renter was willing to travel just one additional stop to 125th St on the 1 train from 116th St, they’d see a median price drop of $823. Overall, median rent prices dropped over much of Manhattan, and rose in the outer boroughs.
