Price Check Rental Edition

What you’ll get across NYC for $6,000 a month

If you've got $6,000 a month to spend on rent, it may be time to take up tanning, or at least grilling. Even smack in the middle of Manhattan, a lot of your options in this price range come with their own outdoor space, or in buildings with shared roof decks, or even both. To make things easy and give you an idea of your options, we've looked through the current listings for options in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx.

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.
