A selection of the latest buildings to remake the East Village rental market A selection of the latest buildings to remake the East Village rental market
Over the past several years, the East Village has made the transition from a gritty artists' enclave to an affluent neighborhood popular with students and home to Trader Joe's and Target outposts. The rental housing has kept pace with that trend to offer a new crop of buildings with stylish interiors and upscale amenities.

As of this writing, the East Village's overall median rent comes to $2,700/month, a figure down 27% since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March 2020. This applies to apartments of all sizes - the median rent of an East Village studio now comes to $2,300/month (down 22% from last March), and the three-bed median rent is $4,518/month (down 28%). At the same time, local inventory is up 111% from last year - there are 359 listed availabilities in the East Village today, as opposed to the 170 available at this time last year. Part of this may be attributed to limited on-campus learning for New York University students, but they are likely to return in the coming academic year.

The decline in rents has slowed, and the number of availabilities is falling week-over-week. Below, see East Village rent data, as well as our ranking of amenity-rich new rentals that have taken shape in recent years.

Game room/ lounge
The Nathaniel is another East Village rental with a pool, but since it's a reflecting one, it's not meant for swimming.

There are 20 unique floor plans, and all feature open-concept living areas, floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak floors, an in-unit washer/dryer, modern baths, and kitchens with a paneled dishwasher, Liebherr refrigerator, custom high-gloss cabinetry with wenge wood details, and Caesarstone blizzard white counters.
