What $2,200/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 34 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: $2,200/month.

? This 1BR apartment on the Upper West Side was recently renovated (you can tell because of all the renovatin' gear lying around) and is on the second floor of a walkup building. The living room appears to be a nice size, but the bedroom and kitchen look very small. It wants $2,220/month.

? In the West Village, the brokerbabble for this apartment claims that it's a "true 1BR," but most true 1BRs that we've seen don't have a bed in the same room as the stove and refrigerator. So maybe the true bedroom triples as the true kitchen and true living room. In any case, the appliances are new. It's asking $2,181/month.

? The white walls and white tile floors make this place seem a little like a padded cell or a doctor's office or something, but it's still a 1BR in Chelsea for $2,200/month, so that's not terrible. Maybe some posters will help.

? In Cobble Hill, a 1BR/1BA with an alcove off the living room, suitable for an office or dining area, is going for $2,164/month. The kitchen appliances are new.

? On the Upper East Side, a 2BR/1BA on East 76th Street is going for only $2,200/month. It looks to be in good shape, with decent-sized rooms, big windows, and nothing really visibly the matter with it, which is making us suspicious.
