Following the country’s economic recession, neighborhoods throughout the United States have witnessed an apartment boom. According to a report by RENTCafe, since 2010, apartment buildings have been popping up at an increasingly faster rate. Unsurprisingly, Long Island City came in first for the largest number of new rental apartments, with 41 new apartment buildings and 12,533 new units built in the past seven years. Nearly 36 percent of all apartments are brand new in this Queens waterfront neighborhood.
While Long Island City leads the pack, other New York City nabes also made the list for most new apartments. Coming in fourth, Manhattan’s Clinton-Hell’s Kitchen area has 6,058 new apartments. Following that, Williamsburg ranks sixth with 5,269 recently built units and in eighth, Downtown Brooklyn, with 3,851 apartments. Finishing up the list in tenth, the Upper West Side saw 3, 536 new apartments built since 2010.
