New York City ranked second in the nation with the highest rental market, behind San Francisco which is first. According to the report, the price of one-bedroom rent fell another 1.9% to $2,550, while two-bedrooms dropped 3% to $2,900. The prices for one and two-bedrooms in New York are down 15% and 17.1%, respectively, year-over-year.

The report noted that the decrease in prices in New York could indicate that the drops may be reaching the floor and might result in price stabilization in the future.
