If you think brand new high-end Short North apartments are expensive, then you’re not likely to want to move to Tribeca anytime soon. According to a new report from apartment search site Zumper, New York’s hip Manhattan neighborhood tops the charts as the most expensive place to rent in the US, where the median one-bedroom will set you back $4,250 per month and median two-bedroom runs $6,500 per month.

No Columbus neighborhoods made the Top 100 list. The majority of the country’s most expensive neighborhoods are concentrated in New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami and Washington DC.

When looking at the Top 25 largest cities in the US, Columbus clocks in as the 18th most expensive with the median one-bedroom costing $800 per month and median two-bedroom at $914 per month. That means that Columbus is still punching below its weight, as it’s the 15th largest city in the US by population.

When looking at the Top 100 most expensive cities of all sizes, Columbus does not make the list, ranking it as a more affordable place to rent than Denver, Nashville, Portland, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Diego, Oakland, Seattle, New Orleans and many others.
