The average rent of an apartment in America is just over $1,000 per month. But do you know how much the average rent is in New York City. Do you? DO YOU? TOO MUCH.

"$3,017 a month, according to new market data."

That is more than a thousand dollars a month more than fucking San Francisco.

If it makes you feel any better, NYC developers are doing everything they can to increase the supply of "superluxury condos."

And don't even think about trying to buy.

More than one in five New Yorkers are below the poverty line. Every new impoverished citizen is one less competitor for that perfect apartment!

Until they rob you.
