New, 10 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: $2,600/month.

↑ In Greenpoint, this one-bedroom apartment features two closets and lots of kitchen cabinetry, as well as fairly large windows. Overall, it looks pretty pleasant. The building includes a laundry room, free bike storage, and parking available for $100/month. The apartment is renting for $2,500/month.

↑ On the Upper East Side, this one-bedroom in an amenity-rich building (fitness center, 24-hour doormen, roof deck) features wall-to-wall carpeting and not much of a kitchen, for $2,550/month.

↑ On West 136th Street in Harlem, a newly renovated one-bedroom is asking $2,600/month. It comes with a small private balcony and the building has a shared roof deck.

↑ In Boerum Hill, a somewhat confusing one-bedroom is asking $2,500/month. The hallway-like living room appears to be currently functioning as a photo studio, and there's a decorative fireplace in the bedroom.

↑ In West Village, a very small one-bedroom with some exposed brick, a closet, and not much else is going for $2,595/month.

↑ And in Chelsea, another small one-bedroom is going for $2,500/month. It has high ceilings, french doors separating the bedroom and living room, and new appliances.
