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: $4,200/month.
? Starting off in FiDi, this 1BR/1BA is as modern, sleek, and cold as you could possibly hope for. It comes partially furnished with cold, sharp, angular furniture, and the "designer kitchen" is designed so that you barely even know it's there. It costs $4,300/month. It also upholds the FiDi tradition of having a shiny black floor that you can do cocaine off of.
? A 2BR/1BA in a brand new building in Williamsburg costs $4,200/month with no fee, "water included." It's got a little bit of exposed brick, or something designed to approximate brick. Plus all that free water.
? In the West Village, a top floor 2BR/1BA is going for $4,200/month. It looks like it gets good light, but doesn't have much living room to speak of.
? This 1,000-square-foot 1BR/1BA is like a less scary version of the FiDi black (in as much as it's modern with shiny black flooring) but with a terrace and a real kitchen. It is in Midtown East, though. It costs $4,250/month.
? The pictures of this place don't tell much of a story, but $4,200/month for a gut-renovated 3BR/2BA in Park Slope seems like a pretty good deal.
? And in Greenpoint, a 4BR/2BA with a new dishwasher, washer, and dryer is asking $4,195/month, heat and hot water included. It also has a lot of exposed brick.
