If you’ve relocated to New York recently, perhaps you’d rather rent for a few years until you learn the lay of the land. Getting to know your way around town and deciding in which neighborhood you’d like to settle before making the long-term investment is pretty smart. And if you’re all about luxury, not to worry, you don’t have to get a mortgage to secure an upscale residence in the Big Apple. Rental buildings have plenty to offer in terms of a luxurious lifestyle. Here is just sampling of not-so-average apartments available to rent in Manhattan.
