In the first full week of August 2021, CityRealty listings show 8,181 publicly listed apartments and townhouses for rent in core areas of New York. This shows a 13.9 percent drop from early July 2021; meanwhile, the Manhattan median rent has jumped to $3,735/month in the same time period. A total of 156 rental listings experienced price reductions in the last week of July 2021, and a full, sortable chart may be found below.

The numbers come at a time when New York has introduced new policies and vaccine mandates. While these measures and good vaccination rates in the city will help protect against the highly contagious Delta variant, some may be worried about going out again. In light of this, we present a selection of rentals with private outdoor space.
