Unfortuantly Long Island doesn't have much apartment complexes. So people usually rent out other peoples basements or the whole house.

1200-1500 is the going rate for a 1-2 bedroom I would say.
2500+ for a whole house.

Not sure about the average, but here is a guide that shows prices for apartments in the Syracuse area:Syracuse Apartments for rent in NEW YORK | ApartmentFinder.com

You will notice that some of these apartments are in the suburbs, but have affordable prices and aren't in "bad" areas at all.

I currently live in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I pay $1550 for a large 500 square foot studio (larger than a lot of 1-BR's) in a very prime area and this is a pretty sweet deal.

When I was apartment hunting in the neighborhood, I was generally seeing these prices:

$1300-1600 for a studio
$1500-2500 for a 1-BR
$2000-3000 for a 2-BR
$3000++ for a 3+BR

There are a lot of apartment complexes. I guess they're considered townhouses. Like Avalon Gardens in Smithtown.

Southern CT has the highest average rental price in the nation. You need to make $70k just to afford a 2 bed apartment, and if you make the state's minimum wage of $8, you must work 164 hours per week. In southern Fairfield County (NYC burbs) you pay about $1,000 per bedroom. In the more affordable area, you can find a decent 3br house to rent for about $2200.

Stamford/Norwalk area has highest rents in nation - Westport News (http://www.westport-news.com/ci_12163899 - broken link)

It can't be the highest average rental price if NYC is quite a bit more than that, and Long Island is generally more than that too.

Tell that to the experts who conducted the numerous studies yielding the same results each year. Keep in mind many rentals in S. CT are pretty large homes which drastically drives up the rental price.
