What $2,800/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 12 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: $2,800/month.


? Kicking things off in Greenwich Village, a 1BR/1BA with all kinds of prewar details is going for $2,750/month. Tin ceilings, exposed brick, and an eat-in kitchen are the highlights. It also appears to be a second floor walk-up.


? In FiDi, this 700-square-foot 1BR/1BA is asking $2,800/month for its spacious living room, high ceilings, and expansive windows. And hey, that's more of kitchen than you're going to find in most FiDi rentals.


? If you're looking for stained glass windows, this 1BR/1BA on the Upper West Side has them. Two of them. They're pretty small, but let's not start getting all picky about the stained glass windows in our $2,725/month apartment. There's also a decorative fireplace and washer/dryer in the unit.


? In Park Slope, a happy-looking 1BR/1BA is going for $2,800/month. It includes prewar details (molding) as well as some newer finishes (recessed lighting), and, frankly, it looks enormous with an eat-in kitchen, living room, spacious bedroom, and a shared backyard.


? This 2BR/1BA in Boerum Hill is a parlor floor apartment, which means you've got to deal with some stone flooring. It has some exposed brick with a decorative fireplace and mantle and is asking $2,850/month.


? In Greenpoint, this brand new luxury 2BR/1BA is going for $3,100/month with one month free, which comes out to $2,842/month. It looks basically the same as every other brand new luxury rental in North Brooklyn, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
