It is not surprising that rent in the urban areas, such as Utica and Rome, is least expensive at $666 and $713 respectively. Traditionally, the rent in suburban areas is much higher which shows true in such areas as New Hartford($804), Marcy($805), and Kirkland($861). What is surprising is how much more expensive the rural areas are compared to the suburbs and urban areas. Both the towns of Lee, at $936, and Westmoreland, at $916, rank the highest and second highest respectively. What is further interesting is that the rural area of Verona has the lowest level of rent at $647.
