Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $3,700/month.
↑ First up, here's a two-bedroom on the second floor of a Mulberry Street walk-up in Soho. It has a washer and dryer, hardwood floors, a large kitchen with a dishwasher, and both bedrooms have separate closets. The rent is $3,695.
↑ A brand-new-looking two-bedroom at Broad and Wall Streets in the Financial District is listed for $3,670. It has a large open kitchen, central-air, and the building, like all FiDi buildings, has a lot of amenities: 24-hour gym, rooftop deck, full basketball court, and a 24-hour doorman.
↑ At TF Cornerstone's East Coast development, a 2BR/2BA with a balcony is asking $3,750 per month. It has all the things one expects in a new development, and the building has a slew of amenities, including a 24-hour doorman.
↑ In the West Village, there's a ground floor two-bedroom asking $3,650/month on Bleecker Street that claims to be huge and renovated. The oddly-shaped living room has a small wall of exposed brick, and the place looks out over a "quiet backyard," but it's unclear if renters can actually use the backyard.
↑ A 1,400-square-foot duplex in western Crown Heights features two private outdoor spaces and a washer/dryer. It's currently configured as three bedrooms, but the lower level space could be used as an office. The rent is $3,650. Downside: the owners might not be the best.
↑ On the Upper West Side, a large one-bedroom is going for $3,650. It has a lovely arched brick wall, decorative fireplace, and it looks like it has very high ceilings. There's a storage loft and a sleeping loft, which the listing says is "great for an impromptu guest bedroom."
↑ And lastly, we have a 2.5-bedroom in a recently renovated Clinton Hill brownstone. It has lots of windows, restored hardwood floors, and new stainless steel appliances, and it's listed for an even $3,700.
