Looking to move to a more affordable neighborhood? Help's on the way: rental listing site Renthop has come out with a multi-functional mapping tool that not only color-codes neighborhoods according to their rents —red areas are pricier compared to the rest of the city, blue areas are less expensive—but also allows users to hover over a neighborhood to see the breakdown of median rents according to bed count. So it's easy to see that a studio in the NoHo Arts District is going to cost more than one elsewhere in NoHo, and there are hard numbers to give deal-hunters an idea of just how much difference they can expect between the two. There are some neighborhoods whose data isn't yet available, but there's still enough information to make the map a cool and useful tool.
