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: $2,200/month.
? In the beautiful beachfront neighborhood of Gowanus (but really almost in Park Slope), $2,200/month rents you a newly renovated, fairly spacious 1BR/1BA with bamboo floors and a good number of windows throughout, including in the (small) kitchen.
? This 1BR duplex in Brooklyn Heights includes a woodburning fireplace, skylights, and a renovated kitchen with a dishwasher. It's going for $2,300/month.
? A small-but-dignified fourth floor walkup on the Upper West Side is going for only $2,100/month. It has a fireplace (may or may not be functional) and some nice molding and window treatments. The bathroom is practically in the kitchen, though, which isn't ideal.
? In Harlem, a large and well-lit 2BR three blocks north of the park is available for $2,200/month. It was either recently constructed or recently renovated, evident by the papered floors. As the brokerbabble so eloquently puts it, "Nice Apartment !"
? In Fort Greene, a 2BR in a very Fort Greene-ish brownstone features a row of floor-to-ceiling (well, almost) windows in the living room and a little exposed brick near the kitchen. It's asking $2,300/month.
? "LARGE LARGE LARGE!!" is perhaps not the best way to kick of this listing for this Lower East Side 1BR when the apartment is, in fact, medium medium medium at best. It is only $2,100/month, though, and includes unspecified outdoor space.
