Welcome back 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: $5,300/month.
↑ On the Upper West Side, there's a rather lovely two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit renting for $5,350. It's a corner unit, so the newly updated kitchen and dining room get a lot of light and there are dark hardwood floors throughout. It's located in a large full-service co-op building with a doorman on West 74th Street.
↑ This one-bedroom on the Bowery in Noho, also renting for $5,350 has two full bathrooms, which seems odd, but would come in handy if the renter wants to chop the rooms into multiple tiny bedrooms, as the brokerbabble suggests. Everything is brand new thanks to a renovation, and there is a washer/dryer in the unit.
↑ In Astoria, renters get a lot more bang for their buck. For $5,210, there is a four-bedroom duplex with a private back garden and a terrace. The decor isn't the bestthe living space has some weird blue built-in wall lightsbut maybe the huge kitchen, dishwasher, and central air conditioning make up for that.
↑ The listing for this Red Hook loft has just one photo, but the place looks nice and loft-y. It's located at 275 Conover Street, which has great views of the harbor and a common rooftop deck. There are two bathrooms and rent is $5,300.
↑ In Gramercy Park, a renovated 1BR/1BA is asking $5,295/month. It occupies a half floor of a brownstone and has a separate dining room, marble bathroom, multiple closets, and lots of brick. Lots and LOTS of brick.
↑ And finally, in Fort Greene, there's a spacious, renovated three-bedroom, two-bathroom with a large kitchen, decorative fireplace, and lots of windows. Rent is $5,300.
