New York City Rent Comparison: What $2,100 Gets You

New, 18 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: $2,100/month.

↑ This Upper East Side one-bedroom, asking $2,100 per month, has some nice things going for it: it has A/C units already installed, which frees up window space; the kitchen is separated from the living areas; and the bedroom is at the back of the unit, ensuring a quiet sleeping situation. ↓ In Park Slope, this studio apartment in a pre-war building is asking an even $2,100, and offering new hardwood floors, a decent-sized living space, and the ability to have a cat. (One caveat: these photos apparently show a 1BR layout in the building, but the appliances would be similar.)

↓ In Bushwick, not too far from the famous Evergreens Cemetery, there's this renovated two-bedroom apartment asking $2,100/month. It has access to a backyard, which looks like it's in need of a little TLC—but hey, it's still a backyard.

↓ This East Village studio may not be huge, but it does have brand-new hardwood floors and a kitchenette—what the latter lacks in counter space, it makes up for with a normal-sized oven and fridge. It's asking $2,100.

↓ According to the listing, this Astoria one-bedroom has been completely gutted, with a brand-new (and very gray) kitchen, hardwood floors, lots of storage space, and a bedroom that can accommodate a queen-sized bed. The pad is asking $2,100/month.

↓ And finally, in Red Hook, this true one-bedroom (which can fit a queen-sized bed) also boasts an open kitchen with new appliances, a fireplace surrounded by exposed brick, and lots of storage space. The price: $2,150/month.
