New, 29 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.

↑ In the East Village, a 1BR/1BA going for $2,100/month includes closet space, an air conditioner, a microwave, and a ceiling fan. Better than all that, though, is the multi-level shared backyard.

↑ In Astoria, a 2BR/1BA in which one of the bedrooms has been renovated and one hasn't (?) is asking $2,000/month. The bathroom also looks new. The floors are mixture of attractive inlaid parquet and not-so-attractive carpet.

↑ In Harlem, up on 141st Street, a renovated 2BR/1BA with lots of windows is going for $1,900/month. Everything is new and clean-looking.

↑ A 750-square-foot 3BR/1BA in Sunset Park is going for $1,950/month. It has some very attractive features, including large bay windows. It's also newly renovated.

↑ On the Upper West Side, a studio apartment half a block from Central Park is going for $2,100/month. It features exposed brick, two closets, and a decorative fireplace.

↑ And in Crown Heights, mere feet from Prospect Park, a spacious 2BR/1BA with a separate kitchen with brand new appliances is going for $1,995/month, heat and hot water included.
