What $4,000/Month Can Rent You in New York City

New, 14 comments

Welcome 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: $4,000/month.

↑ At Williamsburg's Spire Lofts, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment with a shower that's probably very painful to slip in is asking an even $4,000.—Amy Plitt and Zoe Rosenberg

↓ The pictures that accompany this listing for an alcove studio in West Chelsea's Robert A.M. Stern-designed Abington House aren't of the exact apartment up for grabs—that definitely looks like a separate bedroom—but do a good job of showing off the high-profile building. The $4,000/month studio is renting without a fee.

↓ In Greenpoint, this "truly unique unit " (the broker's words, not ours) is located in a townhouse close to the waterfront. The one-bedroom has been gut-renovated, with a brand new kitchen, bathroom, and hardwood floors throughout. It also comes with access to a roof deck, but alas, there's no floorplan to show how the whole thing is laid out.

↓ There are plenty of pros at this Long Island City two-bedroom, located at One Hunters Point: It's close to the 7 train, it has a huge terrace, the rooms are sizable, and there's plenty of closet space. But there's one con: the building is located across from the LIRR train yards, so, you know, something to keep in mind.

↓ In Clinton Hill, $4,093 rents a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment that also has a bonus room. The new building's renting for no fee and offering two months free, to boot.

↓ It's not quite living in a turret, but the living room in this Midtown West one-bedroom has a distinctive, quasi-hexagonal shape. Other features of the 57th Street condo include a doorman, huge windows, and—of course—Hudson River views.
