What $2,000/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 16 comments

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: $2,000/month.

? Let's start things off on the right foot with a newly renovated-looking 2BR in Harlem, available for only $1,900/month. Everything about this place looks nice, from the new kitchen appliances to the new bathroom to the floors and light fixtures.

? In Boerum Hill, a 900-square-foot 2BR claims to be renovated, which it probably was, at some point. That said, it looks perfectly clean and reasonably new, with lots of natural light and a spacious kitchen. It's asking $1,950/month.

? This 500-square-foot, third-floor walkup in Gramercy is described as a "charming 2BR" but it sort looks more like a terrifying cave? It also calls the bedrooms "sleeping rooms," which is just a great way to make the apartment seem weird and creepy. Good location, though, for $2,000/month.

? In Crown Heights, a 1,000-square-foot 3BR, 2BA is going for $2,000/month with no fee. It's pretty far east, even for Crown Heights, and the kitchen appears to leave something to be desired (a floor) but still, that's a lot of space. Also, it's newly renovated.

? In the West Village, a quirky little 800-square-footer is available for $2,000/month. It has a lot of exposed brick and a kitchen with the world's most adorable breakfast bar. We're not entirely sure if we understand everything that's going on in that second picture but, let's be honest, this one looks like a deal.

? And finally, in Bushwick, a "spacious 3BR" appears to be just that. It also appears to get a good deal of light, and also has a backyard, according to the brokerbabble. Only one of the bedrooms is pictured and it looks huge, which probably means the other two are somewhere between recycling bin and large bathtub on the size scale, but the rent is only $1,950/month and that includes hot water, gas, and WiFi, so what are you complaining about?
