Rents are climbing again in Manhattan -- but only in buildings with doormen.

The median price of those apartments, in fancier towers with more amenities, jumped 8.1% in August from a year earlier, to $4,160, according to a report today by appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. and brokerage Douglas Elliman Real Estate. It was the biggest annual increase for doorman rents since 2012.
