From Hell’s Kitchen to Fort Greene, here’s what you have to choose from Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points , in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city.

Concessions are high in neighborhoods where high-rise rentals are prevalent Rental concessions —things like a month or two of free rent tacked on to a new lease, or the landlord paying for certain amenities—are no longer a thing you have to work to negotiate; they’ve become a fact of finding an apartment in New York.

Downtown Brooklyn , which has added thousands of new apartments in recent years, has the highest share of units offering some form of concession, at a whopping 63 percent.

Due to higher than anticipated traffic on the ferry, the city has previously had to hire charter boats to meet the growing demand, but once the six larger boats are fully operational and running that shouldn’t be as much of an issue. Ocean Queen Rockstar—New York City school students gave it that name —arrived from the Gulf Coast at the NYC Ferry Homeport in the Navy Yard earlier this week.
Dockless bikes from Lime and Pace will be available on the Rockaway peninsula If you’re heading out to the Rockaways for a beach day this weekend, you’ll have a new way to get around: Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NYC Department of Transportation announced that the city’s dockless bike share pilot is officially underway, with the first bikes rolling out today along the Rockaway peninsula. Lime and Pace were selected as the operators for this particular neighborhood, with a total of 400 bikes between the two companies during the pilot. Lime will have 100 traditional two-wheelers and 100 pedal-assist bikes; the latter will be available after July 28, when legislation allowing for their place on city streets goes into effect.
