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: $4,250/month.
↑ Not far from Union Square, there's a 1BR/1BA with what the floorplan identifies as a "sleep loft." It has parquet floors, a large open kitchen, and the building has a doorman. Rent is $4,295.
↑ A 1,263-square-foot, 2BR/2BA in a newish warehouse-to-condo conversion in Hunters Point is asking $4,295 (recently dropped from $4,350). It has lovely walnut floors, a dishwasher, washer/dryer, and the rent includes utilities. The building has a lot of amenities, including the usual rooftop lounge and fitness center.
↑ In Park Slope, there's a sunny, newly renovated three-bedroom going for $4,292. It has some exposed brick, hardwood floors, and a closet in every bedroom. It has no brokers fee, and the landlord is offering one month's free rent.
↑ A not-too-tiny charming one-bedroom in Soho is listed for $4,200. The kitchen, which has a half-sized refrigerator, looks a bit tight, and the stove and cooktop may also be half-sized. There are two closets, built-in shelves, and "fantastic-looking Minka fans."
↑ In Gramercy Park, there's a renovated one-bedroom with a very white, very large kitchen. It has hardwood floors, fancy new appliances, and measures 700-square-feet. Rent is $4,250, but the furniture can be added for a higher price.
↑ A sunny, brand new no-fee two-bedroom in Williamsburg is listed for $4,200. The kitchen is large, and the floors are very nice, but the best thing about this apartment is the 650-square-foot private rooftop deck.
↑ And lastly, there's a 1BR/1.5BA in Turtle Bay with central air-conditioning and great herringbone floors. It looks really nice, but it seems like there be more than meets the eye because the unit has been continuously rent-chopped to the current price of $4,200.
