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: $3,900/month.
? Boerum Hill's 560 State Street, which used to function as Jay-Z's stash spot, is now a great place to hold a baby, according to more than one of the listing photos, and a 1,270-square-foot 2BR/2BA in it costs $3,995/month. No pets allowed, especially not drug sniffing dogs. Who knows what's buried in those walls...
? On the Lower East Side, a gut renovated 2BR/2BA is going for $4,000/month with no fee. The layout looks a little bit odd, although there's definitely a lot of space.
? A 988-square-foot 2BR/1BA with 12-foot ceilings in Gold Street Lofts in Dumbo rents for $4,000/month with no fee. The apartment includes an enormous private terrace and the building offers all kinds of amenities such as a fitness center, indoor basketball court and roofdeck with furniture.
? In Carroll Gardens, a 1,500-square-foot 2BR/1BA in a brownstone building features a decorative mantle, inlayed floors, built in mirrors, and windowed, renovated kitchen. The bathroom has a claw tub, if you happen to like claw tubs. It's going for $3,800/month.
? Aire, a supremely luxurious building in Lincoln Square, is a great place to live if you happen to be a professional classical musician (as we all are), as its amenities include sound-proof rehearsal rooms in addition to the "fitness center with yoga room and ballet bar...indoor and outdoor children's play areas, private party and event deck with catering pavilion, elevated park with mature plantings, walking paths and reflecting pool." A 1BR/1BA goes for $4,000/month with no fee.
? In Williamsburg, a wide-open loft with a separate bedroom is available for $3,895/month. If you like exposed brick, you'll love this place, but if you like walls it might not be your thing. If you like exposed brick and walls, things could get very confusing.
