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: $3,900/month.
↑ In Crown Heights (but only a block east of Prospect Heights), a 1,274-square-foot two-bedroom duplex is going for $3,950/month. It has multiple skylights, three bathrooms (three!), and a Juliet balcony. It is, however, a fourth-floor walkup.
↑ In Greenwich Village, a prewar one-bedroom is going for $3,850/month. It includes such fancy original details as exposed brick, wood trim around the windows, and a functional wood-burning fireplace.
↑ In Williamsburg, this 882-square-foot one-bedroom features a very large private garden, a wall adorned with the Brooklyn Toile wallpaper designed by Beastie Boy Mike D. That stuff isn't cheap. The apartment is asking $3,895/month.
↑ In Brooklyn Heights, a prewar two-bedroom with lots of details is going for $3,850/month. It has crown molding, large picture windows, and french doors.
↑ On the Upper West Side, yet another prewar two-bedroom with crown molding and french doors is asking $3,900/month. The kitchen has a window and relatively new appliances.
↑ And in Park Slope, a prewar four-bedroom (all true bedrooms—"no one will have to be stuck in a closet," according to the listing) is going for $3,950/month. Not only does it have four bedrooms and separate kitchen, it has an additional home office and is right next to Prospect Park.
