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: $1,800/month.
↑ In Kips Bay, a 450-square-foot studio apartment with an entire wall of exposed brick is asking $1,800/month. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen and living area, and the building has an elevator and laundry room.
↑ This two-bedroom rental on Madison and East 105th in East Harlem looks pretty spacious, and it features some exposed brick columns. It's asking $1,850/month.
↑ A pastel-colored studio on the Upper East Side is going for $1,775/month. It features a decorative fireplace, decorative molding, and a decorative kitchen. Just kidding, but that is the smallest kitchen in the history of kitchens.
↑ In Bushwick, off the Halsey J stop, a brand new two-bedroom with the kitchen conveniently located in the hallway is going for $1,850/month. The bedrooms are located on opposite ends of the unit, and each has a window and closet.
↑ On the East River side of Astoria, a 700-square-foot one-bedroom (although there appear to be two different bedrooms in the photos) is asking $1,850/month. The curtains are minimally effective.
↑ And in the East Village, a spare but attractive 420-square-foot studio is available, furnished, for $1,740/month. It's on the third floor of a walkup building and includes a wall of exposed brick (painted white).
