What $2,700 Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 14 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: $2,700/month.

? In Long Island City, 697 square feet of the Crescent Club can be yours for $2,675/month. The Crescent Club units, which are only just becoming available as rentals, are being touted as "rental[s] with condo finishes," which is code for "we are having a lot of trouble selling these." Still, looks very nice. Also: no broker fee.

? This 1BR in the East Village looks pretty standard. It's got walls, it's got a floor, it's got a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchen. Sometimes that's just what you're looking for! It also has his and her closets, which is nice, and a private patio, which is very nice. It's going for $2,695/month.

? In Downtown Brooklyn's The Andrea, this 2BR, 2BA is available for $2,800/month. It looks quite nice, although the pictures appear to be computer renderings. It probably looks something like that, right?

? The brokerbabble for this 1BR apartment on the Upper West Side describes the loft as a "storage or sleeping loft," which begs the question: if it's not a sleeping loft, where does the sleeping occur? You can figure that out for $2,800/month.

? This 2BR, 1.5BA in Clinton Hill is pretty weird and pretty awesome. It includes a lofted home office, a common garden with stone gargoyles ("evoking flashbacks to your favorite Harry Potter movie"?excellent brokerbabble) and we are totally not sure what's going on with the bed that is located under some sort of archway. It's going for $2,600/month.

? Finally, in Chelsea, this 1BR, 1.5BA duplex is available for $2,700/month. It includes a private terrace and all new fixtures.
