: I was just wondering why so many people in New York rent apartments, as opposed to owning. I believe New York City has the highest rate of renting in the country - with around 70% of household renting. In most parts of the country, far more people own, than rent.
YO! this is a joke right? how many single family homes do you see around here? would we even have a skyline if there were more than a few dozen of them in Manhattan? 8 million people live in 3 million housing units: 2 million are in buildings with more than 3 units.
coops? condos?: most of those are recent additions/conversions from rental buildings.
you want the facts about real estate in the 5 boroughs, go to the federal gov housing surveys of our little town (hint: go back to tenant.net, search for 'housing survey)
