Looking for a cheaper apartment or just an easier way to get exercise—then Brooklyn is your best bet.
The outer-borough was the top spot for neighborhoods with walk-up buildings, according to a report from StreetEasy.
Bed-Stuy had the highest percentage of walk-ups in the city, followed by Sunset Park and Park Slope. StreetEasy’s entire top 10 list exclusively included Brooklyn areas, which the real estate site emphasized for its lower rents compared to Manhattan.
“At the top of the list is Bed-Stuy, where median asking rents are $1,900/month. Rent a walk-up there and you’ll be spending way less than you would in Manhattan (where the median asking rent is $3,218/month) while also toning those thighs,” StreetEasy wrote on its blog.
StreetEasy also looked at the neighborhoods with the least number of walk-ups, finding that many were unsurprisingly in Manhattan, such as Tribeca landing at number two and Flatiron at number three.
But the area with the fewest walk-up buildings was actually in Dumbo, Brooklyn, where rents compete with the priciest areas of Manhattan at a median of $4,250 per month.
The list of the fewest walk-ups also includes Downtown Brooklyn, Manhattan’s Midtown and Financial District, Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, and Concourse in the Bronx.
