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

New, 11 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 2BR apartment two blocks from the Bedford L stop is going for $2,600/month. It includes exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, and three exposures. The listing vacillates between saying that it has one and two baths, so let's just call it one-and-a-half.


↑ This 1BR with exposed brick lofted storage space is either on West 73rd Street or West 90th Street, depending on which section of the listing you choose to believe. Regardless, it costs $2,570/month, so if it looks anything like the pictures and is actually located somewhere on the Upper West Side that's not bad.


↑ In Crown Heights, this 1,000-square-foot 3BR/1BA is asking $2,700/month with no fee, heat and hot water included. It includes french doors, in case you couldn't tell from the listing photos.


↑ In Midtown East, a 1BR/1BA with a renovated kitchen is going for $2,595/month. It is "SO CLOSE TO GCT!" if that's a factor for you. The building has a gym and a pool.


↑ The brokerbabble for this 2BR/1BA in Park Slope deserves some kind of award: "The pictures of the bedroom is deceiving as far as size. In person, it looks a lot bigger." The apartment is renting for $2,700/month.


↑ And in Chelsea, this 510-square-foot alcove studio is going for $2,600/month, heat and hot water included. It actually looks very livable and has a nice chandelier and built-in shelves.
