Boston apartment rents remain among the most expensive in the nation heading into spring.

That is according to a new report from real estate listings site Zumper, which pegged the median one-bedroom rent as of February 28 at $2,390 a month and the median two-bedroom rent at $2,750. Each were essentially unchanged from a month before.

That Boston is among the nation’s priciest cities for renting is no surprise. It has long stood with the likes of San Francisco, New York, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Washington in terms of leasing costs. The spring of 2019 should be no exception.

Below is Zumper’s breakdown of rents in the 25 priciest cities as of February 28. Note that no other Northeastern city save NYC comes close to Boston.
