The data, courtesy of ApartmentList.com, calculate rent prices during the month of August for ten cities in the area. Numbers include the average cost of one- and two-bedroom apartments and how they compare with the prices from the previous month and last year at this time.

We've ranked the communities by the year-to-year price increases for a two-bedroom apartment. As you'll see, the cost has risen in all ten, with the biggest hikes in the suburbs.
