Real estate platform Zumper released a report analyzing staggering rental prices that continue to break records, finding huge disparities between rents across 81 neighborhoods in the city.

Throughout the city, the median rent for a one-bedroom is $3,980– which is more than twice the national median. According to Zumper, the most expensive neighborhood is NoMad, where residents can expect to pay more than $6,000.

For the second time in four months, FDNY fire inspectors averted a potential catastrophe in East Elmhurst after finding stockpiles of illegally stored propane tanks in the residential neighborhood.

Fire inspectors from the Special Investigation Unit received a complaint of illegal occupancy at a home just south of LaGuardia Airport at 23-57 89th St. They discovered 68 propane cylinders, which they seized along with five food trucks and a box truck parked on the property last week. The inspectors also found illegal single-room-occupancy in the home’s cellar.
