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: $2,500/month.
? On the Upper West Side, this furnished 1BR is available a half block from Central Park. It features a fireplace and a private terrace, which the broker has named Terrance. The main drawback is that although it does have windows, it appears from the photographs that, for some reason, they do not let light in.
? In Williamsburg, an unheard of 3BR is available. Unlike the UWS co-op, it appears to get lots of light, and might be currently occupied by a band (two of the rooms have keyboards, all of the floors have laundry) so if you moved in there and then the band got famous, that would be a fun thing to brag about.
? This 500-square-foot studio is available on the Upper East Side and if $2,500/month seems like a lot for such a small place, consider that the price was actually reduced by 20% a couple weeks ago.
? This 2BR, 2BA in Sheepshead Bay looks very new, plenty spacious, and the windows are huge. It also includes a private terrace.
? In Dumbo, this 850-square-foot 1BR features a wine cooler, a washer/dryer, and a fairly long balcony. The building's court yard also looks very nice.
