New, 12 comments

BOSTON—Well, here's a positive for all your prospective tenants out there: Zillow says the median apartment rent in Boston is $2,410. In Manhattan, according to a new report, it's $3,300. So much cheaper! [Bloomberg/Zillow]
BOSTON—Yup. "Unfortunately, the way it is today in Boston, as in most large cities, just two types of housing are getting built: low-income housing for the poor and those receiving assistance, or luxury and 'super luxury' housing affordable only to the wealthy. The middle-class has been left to fend for itself." [Daily]
