Rentenna launches new Green Score

Most New Yorkers are idealists by nature, and many are on the quest for the perfect bistro, the most amazing new underground band, the best little park to have a picnic, and so on. Rentenna is known for giving a score to every single apartment in NYC, but now they’ve added Green Scores and a Green Heat Map, visualizing the tree density per city block, and all of the farmers markets in the city and major parks. The Green Score is now on every single apartment building page and tells renters the closest parks and farmers markets.

The company states, “Data driven rental site Rentenna ranks apartments on a 0-100 score based on tens of factors (price, transit, amenities, etc..) and now our brand new “Green Score” based on proximity to public parks and farmers markets. The Green Map takes it a step further by incorporating the tree density per block so renters can find that beautiful tree-lined street they always wanted.”

Making New Yorkers’ NPR, public park, organic food dreams come true

On their blog, Rentenna asks, “You know those crisp New York mornings when you roll out of bed, take a stroll down your densely tree-lined block, stop in at the nearby farmers market for some farm-fresh goat cheese and a jug of locally made cider, and then lay out a blanket in the closest public park so you can pig out on all that free-range, organic goodness before letting a well-earned food coma — and the sweet rhythms of public radio programming — take you away to lullaby land?”

“Oh no?” Rentenna follows up.

Then, they cleverly assert that the new Green Heatmap (pictured at the top of the page) highlights the density on each block to help renters find apartments within several of the “green-blessed” NYC neighborhoods, making their public park, NPR, organic food dreams come true.
