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: $3,000/month.
? In Williamsburg, a shiny, new, 748-square-foot 2BR on the second floor of an elevator building is available for $3,000/month. It comes with a private terrace and a "sound distribution system with iPod integration" which, we think, can be roughly translated to "speakers."
? A sunny, prewar 2BR on the Upper West Side is going for $2,950/month with no broker fee. The building includes a full-time elevator/doorman and a live-in super.
? In the West Village, a small-looking, gut renovated 1BR with some fancy finishes is asking $2,900/month. It includes plenty of exposed brick, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and (not visible in photos) a working fireplace. That bathtub situation is very odd, though. Is the bottom rounded? Can you only shower sitting down?
? This 1 or 2BR apartment in Nolita wants $3,100/month for its large, recently updated kitchen. There's laundry in the building.
? In a classic Park Slope brownstone, this 900-square-foot 2BR is going for $3,100/month with no fee. It includes two decorative fireplaces, bay windows, molding, and an additional den/office.
? Three bedrooms on the Upper East Side for under $3,000/month? Sure, why not. This newly-renovated pad with a decorative fireplace is going for $2,950/month. The living room and kitchen don't look particularly large, but what did you expect?
