Some of the other stats in the report show a marked increase in Lower East Side rents. For instance, the average monthly rent in a two-bedroom in a non-doorman building increased 3.3 percent from March of last year to $3,273. The average for a one-bedroom in a doorman building increased nearly 13 percent to $3,552. For perspective, that’s comparable to the February average for the same apartment size and type on the Upper West Side–$3,567.
