Examining the Price Per Square Foot of NYC's Residential Neighborhoods

Last updated 5 years ago

New York City is one of the most exciting places to live in the entire world—and it can also be one of the most expensive, depending on where you live. No matter where you choose to live, hire reputable moving men to help you get there. Whether you are a lifelong resident of the Big Apple or you are just moving to the area, it is important to understand the different residential neighborhoods and their accompanying price tags.

1.6 million people call Manhattan home, making it the most densely populated borough of New York City. Real estate in Manhattan is highly sought after, with many apartments and homes selling for millions of dollars. Living in Manhattan is rather expensive, where it is common to find prices of well over $1,000 per square foot in neighborhoods such as the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Chelsea, and Greenwich Village. Though it is easy to pay a lot for a place to live in Manhattan, there are still good deals to be found. Make sure you do your research before you move to the city.

Though Manhattan is the most densely populated borough, Brooklyn has the most residents with about 2.5 million people. Many neighborhoods in Brooklyn are up-and-coming, making them ideal spots to move for young professionals and families. It is still possible to find places to live in desirable neighborhoods like Williamsburg and Greenpoint for $250-$400 per square foot. Some areas that have yet to be gentrified fetch below $100 per square foot. Set your sights on Brooklyn and have your moving company follow you there!

Queens is home to the second largest number of people of all of New York City’s boroughs. It is also the largest in area, and has both urban and suburban areas with many different types of homes. There are a wide range of properties available that are affordable for many families, so consider Queens when you are moving to New York City.
