The city's market-rate rental inventory has finally flatlined after a precipitous record-breaking climb over the summer. The number of availabilities throughout Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn fell slightly to 21,250 listings but still is more than double the inventory prior to the pandemic. Also note, major landlords in the city often do no list their full inventory of vacancies, therefore the number of availabilities is likely higher. The median price of an apartment in these core areas is $3,075/month with studios asking $2,289/mo, one-bedrooms for $2,950/mo, two-bedroom for $3,996/mo, and three-bedrooms for $5,000/mo. With this unprecedented renter's market, there are still many deals to be had. Below, we unearthed available penthouse apartments across the city asking $3,500/month or less.
