If you've got a little more than $4,000 a month to spend on rent, you can get a pretty nice place in NYC, from smaller, more centrally located apartments in buildings loaded with high-end amenities like swimming pools (or hotel spa access) to entire townhouses fit for a family in the outer boroughs. We've scoured the current listings in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx for options in your price range that'll suit just about every taste.
If this is your first time renting in NYC (or if it's just been a while since your last apartment hunt), take a look at BrickUnderground’s handy How to Rent Guide. For added insight, check out our crash course on how to find an apartment, too.
