Average Rental Prices for Celebs’ Luxury Apartments in NYC
Not too long ago the Rentenna team had some fun mapping out where the celebs live in NYC. But we’ve since matured and become all serious-like, so it’s not so much where stars live that matters to us these days but how much they pay to live where they do. While you’re running around desperately trying to find a NYC apartment for rent, scraping together what little you have to pay the security deposit, celebs are swooping in, cutting fat checks, and enjoying life in luxury. Right?
The truth is, they’re probably not be paying quite what you think.
Do Celebrities Pay More or Less than Average for Rent in NYC?
For some celebs, living just don’t come cheap — and they like it that way. Ace Ventura and Truman Show star Jim Carrey, with his rumored $25,000 per month Greenwich Village apartment rental, throws down nearly 400% more in rent for his pad than the average 2BR renter in a Village doorman building. Meanwhile, When Harry Met Sally megastar Meg Ryan is rumored to be paying some 178% more for her 3BR than does the average New Yorker for a luxury 3BR in her ‘hood. Whatever, haters… it’s Meg Ryan, and we’ll always have what she’s having.
Of course, all this conspicuous consumption doesn’t mean some celebs haven’t found a solid deal for their digs. Ashley Greene’s apartment, for example, clocks in at 5% below the average rent for luxury doorman apartments in the east village. Other “frugal” front-pagers? Former Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin (with his fully furnished downtown W Hotel rental in Battery Park, until he got shipped out of town by the geniuses at MSG) and Chase Crawford (with his luxury Wall Street apartment rental) are rumored to be leveraging their celebrity status to score some sweet pads at below-market rents.
