East Boston — home to Piers Park, Logan International Airport, and Belle Isle Marsh Reservation — should be on any prospective renter’s must-see list.

The rental prices here are relatively lower than in some of Boston’s other neighborhoods — with studios at a median cost of $2,200 a month, one-bedrooms at $2,508, two-bedrooms at $3,150, and three-bedrooms-plus at $3,400, according to Apartment Advisor.
