Some do it for tax purposes, others to accommodate the demands of their wealthy lifestyle, but for whatever the reason, New York City has more than a few tenants paying more than five-figures in rent every month.

In fact, the City has enough "super-renters" paying in excess of $30,000, that some real estate brokers are specializing in high-end luxury properties and exclusively catering to a wealthy clientele, the New York Times reports.

Hollywood actors on New York film shoots, star athletes on the road, and investment bankers renting while building or searching for their dream homes tend to be the most visible in this market. 

Brokers say "a good number of town houses are renting for more than $50,000 a month, and some penthouses in condo buildings are also going for $50,000 or more, according to the paper.
