Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New York City neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $3,000/month.
? In Soho, a charming corner 1BR is going for $3,100/month. It has the advantage of multiple walls of exposed brick, but the disadvantage of having one of those walls painted white—usually a poor choice when it comes to brick, but in this case the effect could be worse. Its other main disadvantage is that it's a fourth-floor walkup.
? In Williamsburg, an 800-square-foot 1BR is available for $2,900/month. It looks spacious enough, includes a washer/dryer, and, apparently, features a "private rooftop cabana."
? A 1,000-square-foot 1BR on the Upper East Side is available for $3,100/month with no fee and claims to be a "triplex," a claim that is called into question somewhat when you see the pictures. Adorable staircase, though!
? In Park Slope, a 1,030-square-foot 2BR, 1.5BA is going for $2,900/month. It's a garden level, but at least that means that you get a very cool back patio and garden, which totals an additional 700 square feet.
? In Chelsea, this second-floor walkup has two very modestly sized bedrooms, and is available for $2,950/month.
? And, finally, three bedrooms can be yours if you're willing to stray as far from Manhattan as—gasp—Crown Heights. The apartment is newly renovated, offers one month free, and is asking $2,995/month.
