This week readers visited Brick Underground to check out the best New York City neighborhoods to buy an apartment to rent out. While is hard to get a deal in the sales market these days—with the exception of Midtown—investors can take advantage of the fact that the NYC rental market is booming and rents are accelerating quickly.

Also of interest: The questions that are supposed to be off-limits for co-op boards to ask during interviews.

Here are this week's top five posts: 

1) Best NYC neighborhoods to invest in—and which ones to skip—in 2021

2) Is a co-op board allowed to ask if I have children?

3) Looking for a rental with an extra bedroom? Here’s how much it costs New Yorkers to size up

4) Buyers who can WFH keep the Hamptons sales market going strong

5) Can my 401(k) help me qualify for a NYC rental?
