What $2,000/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 32 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: $2,000/month.

? Look at those floors! And those windows! This 1BR apartment in Brooklyn Heights offers a lot of charm for $2,100/month. And, while we're not sure what the "ceiling moldings" in the brokerbabble refer to, the marble mantle is definitely there. As is the kitchen, which is about the same size as the mantle. The bedroom isn't pictured and is probably tiny, but such is life.

? In Hamilton Heights on West 135th Street, a 2BR/1BA with exposed brick is going for $1,950/month. It has newish appliances, recessed lighting, and generally looks pretty newly renovated. It's also a sixth floor walkup, but, as the broker himself says, "let's face it, unless you have an unlimited budget NY real estate always requires some level of compromise." Look at this guy, talking sense.

? A 1BR with a "Titanic Queen Bedroom" in Nolita is asking a mere $1,995/month. There's a lot of bragging about that bedroom, but no mention or picture of the living room, which, smart money says, is not large.

? In Prospect Park South, a renovated 2BR with exposed brick is going for $2,000/month, with no broker fee for a two-year lease. There's laundry in the building.

? In the West Village, a renovated studio is available for $2,100/month and that's just about all there is to say about that. It has a closet.

? And in Bushwick, a brand new 3BR/2BA with exposed ceiling beams is going for $2,099/month with no broker fee. There's also exposed brick and a decorative fireplace.
