This week, readers visited Brick Underground to check out a guide to eight New York City neighborhoods to consider if a quick commute to Manhattan is no longer your top priority. Neighborhoods like Todt Hill, Red Hook, and Kew Gardens have a relaxed, suburban vibe—and you can find more space for less money.
Also of interest: NYC landlords are offering more generous concessions to fill empty apartments. If you're looking for a new rental right now, keep an eye out for landlords offering to pay the broker fee, give extra months free, or even defer the security deposit.
Here, in full, are this week's most popular posts.
Staff writer Austin Havens-Bowen covers the rental market and answers renters' questions in a column called Realty Bites. He previously reported on local news for the Queens Ledger and The Hunts Point Express in the Bronx. He graduated from Hunter College with a BA in media studies.
