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: $1,900/month.
↑ This studio apartment with a lofted sleeping area on the Upper West Side has character, which is more than you can say for most apartments at this price point. That character comes in the form of exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, and best of all, a private outdoor terrace. It's asking $1,950/month.
↑ The listing photos do not provide a clear sense of the layout of this Bushwick apartment, but it apparently has a dining room, two bedrooms, and a third miscellaneous room that isn't quite a bedroom for some reason. It also has multiple decorative fireplaces, including a tiny one filled with sticks, for some reason. $1,800/month. The kitchen and bathroom aren't pictures, so that's probably not good.
↑ In Kips Bay (but far enough south to erroneously call itself Gramercy), a studio apartment with a new kitchen, new bathroom, and (presumably decorative) fireplace is asking $1,900/month.
↑ Sure, it might not be the cheeriest looking apartment but this place is located in Williamsburg and it does have two separate rooms and it is asking only $1,850/month. Maybe it would have helped to turn the lights on before they took the pictures.
↑ On the Upper East Side, a one-bedroom apartment with parquet floors and a working (working!) fireplace is asking $1,850/month. The kitchen is tiny and only has room for a mini fridge, but those windows look great.
↑ And in Clinton Hill, a studio apartment with a decorative fireplace is going for $1,975/month. It also has large windows, with swinging shutters.
