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: $2,500/month.
? On the Lower East Side, an 800-square-foot top-floor 1BR is going for $2,500/month with no broker fee. The bathroom was renovated in 2010 and the bedroom, kitchen, and living room are amply sized. There are also two closets and inlaid floors.
? On the Upper West Side, a tiny little 1BR is available in the Ansonia, which is just about the fanciest looking building in the world, so fancy, in fact, that it played the title character (building) in the short-lived ABC show 666 Park Avenue. The apartment features crown molding, a decorative fireplace, and costs $2,600/month.
? A 1BR in a newly renovated building in either Greenpoint or Williamsburg (take your pick, we picked Williamsburg) is going for $2,450/month. It's got some big windows and mahogany floors.
? A 700-square-foot loft in the South Street Seaport includes such charming elements as cast iron columns and exposed wood beams, and such practical elements as a washer/dryer and dishwasher. It wants $2,595/month.
? Buried underneath all this stuff is a pretty big (1,000-square-foot) 2BR in Park Slope with exposed brick and a dishwasher. The price is $2,600/month.
? In Midtown East, a 1BR with a bunch of prewar details is going for $2,600/month, with no fee. All the floors are tiled, which is a little weird, especially since it's not a basement apartment.
