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: $3,500/month.
? In the West Village, a 2BR with exposed brick and newly-renovated kitchen is asking $3,400/month, which includes heat and hot water. There are windows in every room, a ceiling fan, and an air conditioner (somewhere). It does not allow pets.
? A newly-renovated "loft-like" 2BR on the Lower East Side is renting for $3,437/month. It has a dishwasher and seems to get a lot of natural light.
? A cavernous, 1,100-square-foot true loft in a (surprise) converted manufacturing plant in Dumbo is going for $3,600/month. It features, columns, a lofted sleeping area, 13-foot ceilings, and huge windows. It's pretty cool.
? A block north of Central Park in Harlem, this tidy 3BR wants $3,400/month and features new lighting. The main downside appears to be that shower.
? In Hell's Kitchen, a luxury 1BR rental costs $3,514/month. It has a super fancy bathroom and the building has all kinds of amenities.
? And western edge of Bed-Stuy, a 1,200-square-foot 4BR duplex is going for $3,400/month. There's a nice little patio in the back.
