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: $4,300/month.
↑ First up, a new-ish two-bedroom duplex in Clinton Hill. At 1,142 square feet, it's quite large, and comes with two full bathrooms, plus a powder room. There's also a private terrace, and the building offers a solid set of amenities, including a laundry room, bike storage, rooftop deck, and lounges. The rent is $4,250.
↑ Also renting for $4,250, here's a furnished two-bedroom on Christopher Street in the West Village. It looks pretty tightyou could probably reach the fridge from the couchbut this is the West Village, so that's to be expected. It has hardwood floors and an impressive amount of counter space and kitchen cabinets.
↑ Ignoring the laughably small kitchen, this newly renovated three-bedroom on the Lower East Side looks great. Everything is brand new, and it has a washer and dryer. It's renting for $4,355 after one month free, but tenants beware: the landlord is, uh, not the best.
↑ In a new building in Hunters Point South, a two-bedroom with a huge private terrace is renting for $4,375. The photos seems to be of the model unit, as they don't match the floorplan, but they do show off the finishes. The unit has two full bathrooms, multiple closets, a washer/dryer, and the building has a 24-hour lobby attendant and a sundeck, among other amenities.
↑ For $4,300 even, one can rent a kind of sterile two-bedroom on Wall Street in the Financial District. Everything is new and shiny, including the unspecified glass tube atop a sea foam green box in the bedroom that looks like a bong (though it's unclear if that comes with the place). Normal features include six-foot windows and two bathrooms.
↑ On the Upper West Side, there's a one-bedroom with a lot of character and prestigious Central Park West address asking $4,350/month. The living room has some Art Deco influences, while the kitchen has been completely renovated with brand new appliances. It's located in a full-service condo building.
↑ And finally, here's a lofty two-bedroom in Cobble Hill. It has an enclosed porch, 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and a huge kitchen. The rent is $4,350, but it's not available until April 1, even though it's already been on the market for 84 days.
