If “cool”, “vibrant”, and “cheap” is what you are looking for in a neighborhood, Bay Ridge might be your top choice.

Even the most passionate NYC advocates would admit—a handful of local neighborhoods are still not so fun to live in. Bay Ridge is definitely not one of them.

Diverse community, authentic eateries, and quaint buildings (remember the Gingerbread House?)—this neighborhood has at all. One can’t help but wonder—why is local real estate, both sales and rentals, still so surprisingly affordable? Not that we are complaining.

Agorafy has recently run a story exploring the local real estate sub-market. It looks like the stringent zoning restrictions are preventing the construction boom in the area. As a result, Bay Ridge keeps its small-town feel—at least, for now.  So, if “cool”, “vibrant”, and “cheap” is what you are looking for in a neighborhood, Bay Ridge might be your top choice.

The best part is that most local rentals are quite comfortable and spacious—especially, in comparison with NYC’s typical glorified closets. Here at Agorafy we went through all the rentals currently listed on our platform and selected the best five.
