Midwood, a relatively far-flung Brooklyn neighborhood, had the fastest rental scene in the city last month.

The area sandwiched between Brooklyn College and Coney Island saw its apartments rented after a median of just 11 days, according to a StreetEasy report cited by DNAinfo.

Just behind Midwood, Prospect Park South had a similar median asking rent in August of $1,900 a month. But apartments there sat on the market for 13 days.

“South Brooklyn checks off a lot of boxes that New Yorkers are looking for, such as transit access, relatively affordable rent prices and plenty of dining and retail options,” Alan Lightfeldt, a data scientist for StreetEasy, told DNAinfo. “Prospect Park South and Midwood are the markets with the shortest time on market because renters are clamoring for a 24/7 community that is relatively affordable, and they’re finding it in South Brooklyn.” [DNAinfo]Christopher Cameron
