There are a couple of one bedroom one bathroom rentals in Dixon Mills. They are listing it $2295 and $2275, but they say that they have been reduced. They seem to be compatible with ours on paper, but I'm beginning to think that $2200 is max that we can ask for ours. When one bedroom exceeds $2200, it probably takes longer to find a tenant.

News like this one obviously is encouraging for potential landlord. But we honestly don't know exactly how much we should ask for. Sometimes we think $2500 is even okay, but at the same time, looking at so many rental buildings are being built, maybe $2100 is a bit too high.

We are looking at rental listings these days to educate ourselves.


Thanks. Ours is about the same size (one bed one bath 700sqft). It's an old building though (1890's). But we think that the location is much better than Liberty Harbor. I definitely feel it's $2000 minimum. How much additional rent I can ask for, is I'm still not sure.


I left dtjc in 2010 and rents were about 1750, there is a house identical to mine a few doors down which is being rented out for $2100 a month but its a house with parking. I would think that you can ask for 2500-2700 at least because no one down there expects to get parking.

Anyone who actually lives in historic dtjc not in a luxury highrise knows this article is wrong. Maybe some random newly built "brownstones" charge more but there's plenty of 2bds for $2000-$2500 in harsimus cove and Hamilton park.

The luxury areas aren't historic at all.

Roommates, hardest working, 720 Sq. Ft. All this for thousands of dollars. Sounds like a shore house in July. A fool and their money soon part.

Rather than create yet another municipality why not leave JC and join with Hoboken? We could build a wall around DTJC and just leave one opening for people in the rest of the city to enter. Let's call that Checkpoint Stevie.


Count me in, though I'd like to kick out all the public housing and homeless shelters to beyond "Checkpoint Stevie."


Au contraire - as a firm believer in noblesse oblige I would allow Hope House to stay.

Even The Pier doesn't have *any* 1BRs listed for $3000 or more (currently).

It appears we are happy to live in gated communities ... are we turning into South Africa by segregating or creating some sort of socioeconomic apartheid?

Are those apartments riddled with bedbugs?

In all seriousness, I haven't seen any decent sized, true 2-bedrooms in DTJC, in great condition, that go for less than 3K. Where are these mythical DTJC 2-bd apartments that go for 2K?

Where did they get over $3000/month for a 1BR??? That's *maybe* the average ask in the very most expensive rental buildings (Monaco, 70 Greene), but I pay significantly less than that.

Woah,woah, woah? people are paying $3,068/month for a 1BR in DTJC? That must be on the extreme high-end in one of the "butter-me-up" high-rise units. You can definitely still find a decent 1BR for around 2K.

By Patrick Villanova | The Jersey Journal

Historic Downtown Jersey City is among the nation's most expensive neighborhoods for renters, according to a recent online study.

Apartments.com ranked the popular neighborhood near the Jersey City waterfront No. 8 on its list of the 14 most expensive neighborhoods for renters in 2014.

The website put the rankings together using a variety of financial factors, including average cost of rent, household income, percentage of paycheck spent on rent each month and inflation. Neighborhoods where a high percentage of monthly household income was spent on rent were given the most weight.

With its brownstones, idyllic parks and close its proximity to Manhattan, renting a one-bedroom apartment in Historic Downtown Jersey City comes at a steep price -- $3,068 per month, according to Apartments.com.

Comprised of low-rise buildings, brownstones and parks, this neighborhood features many cultural attractions including the Jersey City Museum, the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Powerhouse.

The average cost of a one-bedroom unit in Downtown Jersey City is more than three times the national average, which was $939 in August, according to CoStar, the commercial real estate industry's leading provider of information and analytics.

So what's the most expensive neighborhood in the country, according to the report?
