New York City is notoriously expensive, and it’s not just Manhattan that will take a toll on your wallet should you decide to move to The Big Apple. Finding a one-bedroom apartment for under $1,000 per month is all but impossible — rent is more than triple that in many parts of town.
We hate to break it to you, but the numbers actually get worse. Those little red numbers with a percentage sign next to the figure represent the average annual increase in rent prices, meaning what you see here will be null and void when it comes time to renew your lease.
But as high as these rent prices are, there is one perk that can help you to offset the cost of living: you don’t need a car. In fact, if you’re planning to move to New York, go ahead and sell your vehicle now. You might take in enough to cover the deposit and first month’s rent on your new apartment.
