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: $4,300/month.
↑ In the East Village, there's a two-bedroom apartment on East 9th Street with a lovely 700-square-foot private backyard. The interior looks nice, too, with hardwood floors, a separate kitchen, French doors, and a newly renovated bathroom (though, oddly, it's not pictured) Rent is $4,300.
↑ For $4,250/month, you can rent a renovated one-bedroom near Madison Square Park in Nomad. It had dark hardwood floors, south-facing windows, and a washer/dryer. The kitchen and bathroom both look spacious, but that bedroom looks mighty narrow.
↑ An 1,150-square-foot three-bedroom in Gowanus features a huge kitchen with a dishwasher and floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room. It has air-conditioning, and it's not far from the new Whole Foods. It's asking $4,250/month.
↑ Located on Billionaires Row in Midtown, this one-bedroom features something rarely seen in one-bedrooms: a powder room. It also has Central Park views and a washer/dryer. It measures 779 square feet and is on the market for $4,300.
↑ In Long Island City, $4,250 a month will rent a two-bedroom with a balcony in one of the neighborhood's many new buildings, 4545 Center Boulevard. This place has two full bathrooms and lots of closets, and the building offers 50,000 square feet of amenities, including a sun deck, beach volleyball court, and a dog run.
↑ A large 1,500-square-foot one-bedroom garden apartment on the Upper East Side is going for $4,250 per month. The interior looks a little dated, but it has two working fireplaces, a large kitchen, and some impressive built-ins in the bedroom.
↑ And finally, this last place is the cheapest apartment on this list. It's a sprawling loft in Williamsburg that can be divided into two or three bedrooms. It has a balcony, 11-foot ceilings, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer, and it's asking $4,200/month.
