The survey revealed that the number of vacancies in NYC dropped to 'historic levels' in 2023, with less than 1% of apartments that cost less than $2,400 a month being vacant and available to rent.
There are currently 3.7 million housing units in New York City - the most since the survey began back in 1965.
