What $2,700/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 11 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: $2,700/month.


↑ In Greenwich Village, we have this charming little probable studio (the listing has it as a one-bedroom, but we have our doubts) with a lofted bed, skylight, and beamed ceiling. There's also a dishwasher. It's asking $2,650/month.


↑ Another one with a lofted bedroom/area, this three-level apartment on the Upper West Side has double-height ceilings in the living room and an extra half bath and is asking $2,800/month.


↑ In Park Slope, this brownstone apartment looks about as spacious as one-bedrooms get (in this price range, anyway). For $2,650/month you get "wide-plank wood floors, large front windows with shutters, and a decorative Majolica tiled fireplace with original oak mantle," and more.


↑ In Greenpoint, this nice, bright, little one-bedroom is going for $2,600/month with no broker fee. It looks pretty new and comes with a private balcony with enough room for a table.


↑ This listing in Crown Heights (definitely not Prospect Heights, as it claims) appears to feature pictures of a number of different apartments in the same building. But, assuming there actually is a three-bedroom unit there that's going for $2,800/month, you know basically what you're getting — a weird, cheap-looking sink, a lighting fixture hung way too close to the counter, and an indeterminate number of windows.


↑ And in NoMad, a renovated one-bedroom is asking $2,625/month. It includes built-in shelves, an arched entryway, and not a whole lot else.
