My firm has deep expertise the rental market, and I can tell you in our office what we're seeing is that the rental market is getting tighter compared to what it was during the worst of the financial downturn. This is pushing up rents either directly, or by the elimination of landlord concessions such as a free month's rent or the landlord paying the broker's fee (instead of the tenant paying it).

The Upper East Side, where we have many listings, is a slightly softer market than other areas of Manhattan, such as midtown. There is more supply relative to demand on the UES,

That said, there are still good deals to be had out there in rental homes. The best value apartments get snapped up quickly.

Depending where on the UES. Majority of parking rules in New York are "No Parking" before 6 or 7pm. Some blocks offer street parking, you just have to be prepared to spend much of your time circling around or standing idle waiting for someone to free up the space. Being that UES is so densely populated, you are competing for one spot with hundreds of other drivers.

Try looking into long term parking rates in the area.

Seems like 16 E(East) 74 St is the number of the building--missing is the unit number--however, the mail delivery person will place it in the building's mailbox with your pal's name--each occupant has a mailbox of their own. Hopefully this helps.
