Manhattan Apartment Rental Info
SoHo / Greenwich Village (Manhattan Apartments) Neighborhood Information for Apartment Renters
- Manhattan reveals its village origins in the Village. Streets have names and the housing tends to be small and quaint (or "old", if you don't like euphemisms). This is a low-density part of town, making rents among the highest in the city because there's just not much available. However, RDNY.com knows where the rental gems are, and we can connect you with more Village landlords than any other no-fee service. The Village has always had a reputation as being the most tolerant neighborhood in New York, and that will probably never change. From the Beats of the 50s to the trannies of the 00s, the Village is home. And how's this for perfect Village irony: the Perry St AA meeting is known as a very, um, singular experience. Read Augusten Burroughs and Toby Young for yourself.
- Greenwich Village
- SoHo (South of Houston) (pronounced How-ston) is the neighborhood that defied Robert Moses. Mr. Moses wanted to raze the beautiful cast iron buildings to make a less beautiful highway between Queens and mid-town, but the residents rebelled and now those buildings are among the most desirable homes in the city. Hence, they're among the most expensive, too. RDNY.com keeps in touch with SoHo landlords so we'll always have the best rental lofts available. SoHo began its transformation from being Manhattan's industrial center to the artist's Mecca in the 70s, and now it's so popular that the artists can't afford it. SoHo is lower-density than the Village, and many of the best buildings are co-ops or condos, making finding a rental a challenge. There are walk ups and some newer construction buildings for rent. RDNY.com knows where they are, plus we list co-op and condo sub-lets, which are really hard to find on your own.
