What $2,500/Month Can Rent You in 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: $2,500/month.

↑ In East Harlem, on 118th Street and 2nd Avenue, a newly renovated, floor-through three-bedroom is asking $2,500/month. It has a bunch of windows. It's unclear where the entrance to the apartment is, so there's a chance that two of the bedrooms are railroaded.

↑ In Clinton Hill, a definitely-not-renovated fourth-floor walkup is going for $2,500/month. It features two bedrooms and a fireplace. The kitchen is described as "modern," which is true only in the sense that you don't have to churn your own butter.

↑ In Chelsea, a cramped one-bedroom is asking $2,525/month. (To be fair, it may look especially cramped because all the previous tenant's stuff is there.) It has exposed brick and a separate kitchen.

↑ On the southern border of Bed-Stuy, in a luxury rental building called the Bradford (which the broker cheekily refers to as "The B-rad"), this two-bed, two-bath is going for $2,463/month. Amenities include a gym and a shared roof deck, and The B-rad is LEED Gold certified.

↑ Sleeping in this overhead storage rack sleeping loft in an Upper West Side studio looks moderately unpleasant. But at least the couch looks nice and big. The apartment can be had for $2,450/month.

↑ In the East Village, the highlight of this renovated one-bedroom is the very green backyard with a patio area. It's asking $2,495/month.
