A new report by RentCafe finds that the most expensive apartments in the United States are not in San Francisco. This honor goes to Manhattan which has 26 of the top 50 ZIP codes with the highest rent; the highest being in Battery Park with an average rent of $5,657/month.
Not surprisingly, San Francisco is second with 13 of the highest rent ZIP codes. Southern California has five of the highest.
The news isn’t all bad, however. If you’re looking to rent give Wichita and Memphis a try; both have apartments for less than $600 a month.
