Between November 2020 and January 2021, the Manhattan rental market saw a 23% drop in inventory as a record pace of leasing took hold up and down the island. As of today, there are 12,414 actively-listed rentals on the isle, down from 16,209 listings two months ago. All configurations, from studios to three-bedrooms saw their inventory decline by more than 20%, with one-bedrooms leading the way. While the island's overall median asking price fell a marginal 2% to $3,137/month, sticker prices for larger apartments plummeted, with three-bedrooms falling 35% to $4,850/month. However, the median price studios increased by 9% and one-bedrooms held steady at an even $3,000/month

Generally, long sought-after neighborhoods saw their inventory fall the fastest, while neighborhoods hit hardest by the most recent wave of gentrification, such as Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant saw their inventory continue to climb. Over the last week, the core areas of the city saw the prices of more than 1,100 active rental apartments reduced. With the current fire sale of apartments before us, we compiled ten newly-reduced apartments around $3,000/month in the city's ten priciest neighborhoods.
