What $5,000/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 30 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: $5,000/month.


↑ In Richard Meier's On Prospect Park in Prospect Heights, a 1,091-square-foot corner 2BR/1.5BA with a private terrace is going for $4,950/month. It features floor-to-ceiling windows and a gym membership for two is included in the rent, which would be more enticing if the tenants hadn't already sued the architects for building shoddy amenities. But still, looks like a very nice apartment.


↑ A 2BR/1BA in Midtown West is asking $5,000/month. It could also be a 3BR, sort of, as the owner is offering to put up a wall, although it's not clear exactly where that wall would be. The building's amenities include a gym and a swimming pool.


↑ In a prewar doorman building in the West Village, this large 1BR/1BA includes beamed ceilings, arched doorways, and parquet flooring and is asking $5,000/month.


↑ In Dumbo, a 2BR/2BA with huge windows and 11-foot concrete ceilings is going for $5,000/month.


↑ This 2BR/1BA in Soho sort of resembles a cave, but a cool cave with brick walls, ceiling beams, potted plants, and two decorative fireplaces. There are also windows, which ostensibly get light, but maybe it could use a few lamps or something. It's asking $5,000/month.


↑ In FiDi luxury building Le Rivage (that means "The Shore," in French, which is a very fancy language), a 1,083-square-foot 2BR/1BA goes for $5,095/month. Amenities include a big fitness center with a yoga studio.
