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: $5,400/month.
? Whenever we choose an amount for one of these over, let's say $3,000, it always seems to end in everyone getting depressed about just how little that amount gets you. But hey, that's all part of the game, so here we go. On the Upper West Side, this 1,050-square-foot 2BR, 1.5BA is going for $5,250/month. It features a large living room and a bunch of closets. Oddly, the living room has parquet floors and the rest of the apartment has normal floors.
? In FiDi, this 1,175-square-foot 2BR, 2BA loft is available for $5,350/month. It has lots of open space and many large windows.
? This 950-square-foot duplex in Greenwich Village has only one bed and one bath. It is very cool, though, featuring 18-foot ceilings, a walk-in closet, and a functional fireplace. It's going for $5,300/month.
? In Park Slope, this 1,800-square-foot brownstone duplex is available for $5,300/month. It has three beds, one and a half baths, high ceilings, and large windows.
? In Harlem, a 1,400-square-foot 3BR, 3BA duplex is going for $5,250/month with no fee. It includes exposed brick, arched windows, and a lot of space.
? This last one is a little nicer and little pricier: in Fort Greene, a 2,000-square-foot 2BR, 2.5BA with a private back garden is going for $5,500/month. Exposed brick and french doors abound! Plus, there's a basketball hoop in the back.
