What $2,600 Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 13 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: $2,600/month.

? In Williamsburg, a highly attractive 1BR unit in 84 South 1st Street goes for $2,500/month, with no fee. It includes a spacious living room, large windows, and a balcony.

? In Long Island City's Vere offers a 650-square-foot 1BR for $2,595/month. It includes floor-to-ceiling windows and the bathroom has radiant heated floors, which are both coveted apartment features that, honestly, seem a little overrated. The building has lots of amenities, though.

? A three-room 1BR in the West Village is going for $2,675/month. It has a windowed kitchen. The bedroom not pictured and almost certainly not large.

? In Park Slope, this 800-square-foot 2BR is going for $2,550/month. It is very spacious and features some decorative mantles and a skylight. Some of the floors are painted a pretty unpleasant shade of blue, however.

? On the Upper East Side, a surprisingly-not-tiny-looking 2BR is available for $2,575/month. It has a whole bunch of windows. Side note: the fact that people take pictures of apartments for use in listings and don't turn the lights on is something that we'll never understand.

? And, finally, on the Upper West Side, a duplex 1BR with an extra half bath is available for $2,700/month. It includes a fireplace (probably not functional) and a balcony.
