What $5,200/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 14 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: $5,200/month.

↑ In Dumbo, a 1,500-square-foot 3BR/1BA duplex is available for $5,300/month. The "bedrooms" are a little questionable, particularly the one that's basically just a bed sitting on a ledge with a privacy curtain, but the lower level is pretty cool, and has a balcony. The apartment also comes furnished, including the flatscreen TV.

↑ In the East Village, a new 2BR/2BA with some fancy finishes is asking $5,200/month. It has large windows and a private balcony.

↑ This 1,079-square-foot 2BR/2BA on the Upper West Side doesn't look like it's been updated recently, but, as the only apartment on its floor of the building, it does feature a large, private wraparound terrace. The bedrooms are also on opposite ends. It's asking $5,200/month.

↑ In the Seaport, a 2BR/2BA in Historic Front Street is going for $5,215/month with no fee. The rooms are very large and open. (Side note: the placement of the windows on the walls is kind of weird, right?)

↑ A very attractive 3BR/2BA duplex in Carroll Gardens is asking $5,200/month. It features exposed brick and an archway leading into the kitchen which also has a reclaimed wood bar. There is also a 50-foot-deep backyard with grass and stuff.

↑ And in Turtle Bay, a 1,200-square-foot 1BR/1.5BA wants $5,300/month. It has numerous windows, a huge living room, and a private balcony. Building amenities include a doorman, concierge, pool, gym, and children's playroom.
