What $2,900 Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 17 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: $2,900/month.

? $2,900 is how much it costs to buy a Domino's Rolex, or how much it costs to rent any of the apartments in this list. Which is preferable? It's really a tough call. On one hand, you totally need a place to live or you might get wet when it rains. On the other hand, Domino's Rolex. Anyway, in Manhattan Valley, this 2BR is going for $2,800/month. It looks nice.

? The last time we included a Chinatown apartment in one of these, it was kind of as a joke. This place is no joke, though. It's got two bedrooms and two bathrooms, apparently (there's no floorplan) and, unlike that other place, it's made out of normal apartment materials such as wood and brick. It's costs $2,900/month.

? In Cobble Hill, this 1BR, 1.5BA in a 19th century brownstone is going for $3,000/month. It looks charming, if a little overpriced, and has a "NO PETS" policy.

? This 2BR in Greenwich Village is going for $2,800/month. It has some french doors, which probably don't offer the most privacy for whoever's room that is, but then again, french doors.

? This 600-square-foot three-area studio on the Upper West Side looks real nice for $2,800/month. Look at those windows.

? This 2BR, 2BA in Gowanus is a little weird with its two ornamental mantles and wood paneling halfway up the walls. It costs $2,950/month.
