If you want to live in Manhattan, chances are you’re going to be a renter. Manhattan has long been known as a place where people rent, a transient city with people coming and going on a constant basis. Most of the apartments buildings in Manhattan are rentals, and many of those buildings are filled with long-term tenants that have discovered that renting is the simplest and easiest way to live in Manhattan.

Renting in NYC has its definite perks, one of which is convenience. Landlords must take care of apartment mishaps at no charge to the renter and in a timely fashion. But the largest point in favor of Manhattan rental buildings is their sheer abundance. With the majority of apartments in Manhattan serving as rentals, a renter can choose his or her favorite type and find hundreds of choices within that type alone. Whether one prefers classic doorman pre-war architecture, the cast-iron industrial look of Soho, or the amenity-laden new construction buildings of contemporary times, the Manhattan rental has got you covered.
