What $1,900 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: $1,900/month.

? This Upper East Side duplex doesn't have particularly large rooms, judging by how much of the floor the photograph was able to fit into any of the pictures. It does, however, have two entrances (which is nice?) and a microwave, and for $1,950/month you take what you can get.

? In Park Slope, utilities are included in the $1,900/month rent for this two-room apartment. It looks better than it looks, if that makes any sense. That is to say, it could use a little decorating and we're not sure why whoever took the pictures decided to do so at night. But it has exposed brick and two mantles, if mantles are your thing. There no pictures of the kitchen, though, so that might not be a good sign.

? This East Village 1BR apartment has it all: exposed brick, french doors...windows. Heat and hot water are included in the $1,950/month rent.

? This fourth-floor walk-up is available for $1,950/month. It boasts a windowed kitchen, but no laundry in the building. Can the Upper West Side claim the top spot for the second consecutive week?

? This Windsor Terrace newly renovated apartment claims to have two bedrooms, which, if true, makes it the rare 2BR available for under $2,000. It looks a little bland, but fairly nice for $1,950/month.

? This four-room 2BR just might be the nicest place on this list, although we do know how you guys feel about East Harlem. It definitely appears to be most spacious, but the windows look a little on the small side. It's also the most expensive, for $1,995/month.
