What $2,900/Month Can Rent You in New York City

New, 16 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: $2,900/month.


↑ In Park Slope, a two-bedroom apartment with a dishwasher and a skylight in the living room is asking $2,950/month with no fee. It includes french doors and brightly painted walls.


↑ A spacious 818-square-foot one-bedroom in Harlem is going for $2,950/month. The listing has pictures of multiple apartments (or one apartment with multiple arrangements of different pieces of furniture) so we just picked one. It has exposed brick, probably.


↑ In Prospect Heights, a "2 1/2- bedroom" (not a real thing) apartment is going for $2,950/month. It's large at 1,100 square feet, but unfortunately it looks like a railroad situation.


↑ On the Lower East Side, a small two-bedroom apartment with exposed brick is going for $2,950/month. If you go to an open house there, it might be nice to bring the current tenants some toilet paper, because they are out and also refuse to throw away any of the empty rolls.


↑ In Bed-Stuy, a large (1,104 square feet) and luxurious one-bedroom apartment with a separate office is going for $2,950/month. It also includes an additional half-bath and a balcony.


↑ This two-bedroom apartment in Bushwick isn't much to write home about, but it does come with a large shared backyard. There's also an in-unit washer/dryer. It costs $2,950/month with no fee.
