is at least 68% higher than the US average, according to SmartAsset. If you think that's a lot, the cost of living in Manhattan specifically is more than double the national average.
At the center of it all is New York City's high-cost housing market. Asking rents in New York City increased by 33% from December 2009 to June 2019 at roughly 3.9% a year, reports StreetEasy.
And while the NYC rental market has seen declining prices this year, the average rent for an apartment in Manhattan remains exorbitant at ,667 — a 10% decrease compared to ,085 the previous year.

That number is even more shocking considering that the average size for a Manhattan apartment is only 703 square feet.
Even then, some neighborhoods in Manhattan are notoriously more expensive than others. Rent in Battery Park City, for example, is 52% higher than the Manhattan average.
