I'm convinced that the LES is getting more costly by the minute. Just check out the real estate blog 'curbed.' And it's not any nicer than it ever was...just more expensive. Not my favorite area.

I agree. Its expensive and dirty with lots of projects. There are a few nice parts but overall I'd not recommend.

The average rent for a LES studio is $1,900 for a non-doorman building and around $3,000 in a doorman building.

LES one bedroom: $2,500 (non-doorman) and $3,800 (doorman).

not mine either...not exactly aesthetically pleasing to the eye....the whole area looks so grungy imo, which is why i cant understand the prices. furthermore i think transportation sucks....the F and the J train? lets be real.

i agree on that. The F and J are among the worst in the city. And I ride the G so I know what a crappy train is.

The LES is also insanely noisy. Not just regular city noise, but also from lots of drunk people wandering from bar to bar. It's like Disneyland there during the summer.

For a young single person with means who is more concerned with a social life less so with quality of life its heaven. As for the aesthetics some people actually like that. Since it gives them some cred. Hey my neighborhood is dirty looking, it's got that old New York feel to it. Hey whatever floats your boat.

The F train is spotty, it actually runs good through queens but once it gets to Manhattan and on the way to brooklyn it starts acting up. The V stops at 2nd Ave LES too and its not bad.
