What $2,800/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 28 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: $2,800/month.

↑ In Park Slope, this prewar 850-square-foot 1BR/2BA is going to $2,900/month. It features two exposures, crown molding, and beamed ceiling in the living room.

↑ A 2BR/1BA with a "semi-separate kitchen" on the Lower East Side is going for $2,700/month, and you can probably do a better job decorating it than the current tenants. No pets allowed.

↑ In the Financial District, this listing includes the bewildering series of words "This marvelous studio (Conv 2BR)..." Luckily, it includes a floorplan, and is pretty clearly a 1BR (splitting the difference). There's also a private terrace. It costs $2,800/month.

↑ In Prospect Heights, a homey 2BR/1BA is asking $2,900/month. It's got exposed brick, a decorative mantle, a dishwasher, and in-building laundry.

↑ In Gramercy, a clean-looking 2BR/1BA does not allow pets and is asking $2,850/month. The kitchen isn't much to write home about.

↑ And in Williamsburg, a 2BR/1BA with an open layout that "allows for plenty of creativity and natural sunshine" is going for $2,895/month. The kitchen is particularly large, and includes a dishwasher.
