[All hail the return of the Curbed Three-Pack! Easy to carry, and nary a trans-fat in sight. Now in three mouthwatering flavors: rentals, sales, and open houses. Each week, in each edition, we'll feature three properties with something in common, be it price range, location, number of rooms, hipness factor ... We'll hit the highlights and you can hash it out amongst yourselves. As always, suggestions of properties to feature are welcome at email@example.com.]
Today, in honor of the Times' dizzyingly comprehensive wrap-up of High Line development, we link three similarly priced rentals a stone's throw from the soon-to-be grasslands of west Chelsea. Get out those binoculars.

Northern exposure. Walk-in closet. Galley kitchen. Washer/dryer. In the building: 24hr doorman, gym, rooftop terrace and "David Rockwell-designed lobby," lest you think a place that shares a name with Britain's famous art galleries not get that sort of thing right.

What/where: Two-bedroom walk-up "right by the High Line Train Tracks"
How much: $2500/month
No address listed, but it's on the second floor. "TONS of light ... unique cabinetry in the kitchen ... HUGE walk-in closet." This being a lease-breaker situation, though, you have to put up with the mess of departing tenants in the photos.
