New York City is a city made for renters, and in fact, more than two-thirds of households in NYC rent their homes. Meanwhile, more people live in apartments in New York than in any other U.S. state. So, if you’re looking to rent in New York, you’re in good company!  

Yet the process of finding an apartment can be daunting, especially if you aren’t sure what neighborhood you want to live in or need a flexible lease. This is where June Homes steps in to walk you through the NYC rental experience and help you find an apartment in a great location that you’ll love.  


Renting an Apartment in New York City 

Real estate in New York City tends to come with a high price tag, which is why you want to make absolutely sure that you love the place you choose to rent. Some apartments for rent in Manhattan, for example, are over $4,000 per month. But those costs are even higher in certain parts of the city, such as Little Italy, TriBeCa, and SoHo. 

The location you choose will have a huge impact on your experience in the city, including the people you meet, your commute to work or school, and the activities you do on the weekends. Many of the iconic tourist spots are in Manhattan, while Brooklyn is a hot spot for creative types, and Queens is known for its green parks and residential neighborhoods. Meanwhile, the Bronx is a cultural epicenter that’s loved by baseball fans, and Staten Island feels like an escape from city life while still being close to all the action.  

Endless options, right at your fingertips!
