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: $3,700/month.
↑ In Prospect Heights, a small but very penthouse-y penthouse is asking $3,700/month. It includes two floors, a private terrace, and what the broker describes as a "chef kitchen," apparently having forgotten that pictures were included with the listing.
↑ In Murray Hill, a few block south of Grand Central, a boxy 724-square-foot one-bedroom is going for $3,600/month. As for selling points, the listing notes that it is "freshly painted."
↑ In East Village, a two-bed with a nice-sized living room and tiny bedrooms is asking $3,650/month. It comes with a washer/dryer in the unit.
↑ For renters looking for a bit more space, out in Bed-Stuy this three-bedroom, two-bathroom ground-floor duplex is asking $3,750/month. It includes some attractive architectural details as well, but unfortunately it's an equidistant schlep between the L and J trains.
↑ In Chelsea, a studio apartment in a full-service building is asking $3,775/month with no fee. It looks spacious, as studios go, and comes with a Juliet balcony.
↑ In Greenpoint, this two-bedroom duplex is located in a converted factory building and you know what means: exposed brick. It includes custom-made furniture, though not, apparently, in the lofted bedroom. It's asking $3,600/month.
