Mr McAllister says the following about his new life in New York:

Oh, sure, my apartment's a little smaller than what I was used to back in Omaha, and the rent's pretty darn steep, but it's got a lot of character, and I'm cozy enough.

What is the meaning of "darn steep"?

    Specifically, 'steep' is often used to describe high prices.

    'Darn' and 'pretty' are both intensifiers.
