New, 15 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: $5,500/month.


↑ Get ready to say "They're charging that for that?" a lot as we once again venture above $5,000. In the East Village, this very spacious 3BR with parquet floors, large windows, and a washer/dryer is going for $5,500/month. It also includes a dining room, but does not allow pets.


↑ In Brooklyn Heights, this 2BR/1.5BA on the top floor (and you can tell, with skylights throughout) of a brownstone is asking $5,500/month. Highlights include wide bleached wood plank floors, recessed lighting, washer/dryer, a walk-in closet, and a wood-burning fireplace.


↑ A fully furnished 3BR/2BA is available in Gramercy for $5,500/month, utilities included. It doesn't look terribly exciting, but then again, it's only available for five months so you probably won't get too sick of it.


↑ A very spacious-looking 1,429-square-foot 2BR/2BA in the Gretsch Building Williamsburg is asking $5,500/month. It boasts huge windows and sweeping views.


↑ On the Upper East Side, 2BR/3BA in an amenity-filled, no-pets-allowed building is going for $5,500/month. It includes a dining alcove and a washer/dryer.


↑ And in Carroll Gardens, a 3BR/2BA duplex is going for—you guessed it—$5,500/month. It just looks nice.
