Boston's toniest neighborhood is known more for monster multimillion-dollar sales and five-figure leases than it is for deals. But a decent rental on a modest (for downtown Boston) budget can be had if you don't mind 263 square feet of living space. We found nine apartments in Back Bay currently asking less than $2,000 a month, starting with the 650-square-foot studio at 305 Beacon Street pictured above going for $1,900 a month and not allowing pets. The fireplace is strictly decorative.
