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: $5,000/month.
↑ A one-bedroom penthouse in the West Village is going for $5,000/month. It's a duplex, with a cool bridge-thing to a private outdoor terrace, as well as a balcony overlooking the living room.
↑ A one-bedroom apartment in the "only unattached townhouse on Gramercy Park," according to the listing, is going for $4,900/month. The ceilings are soaring, with multiple skylights, and there's a private deck.
↑ In Park Slope, a newish three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is going for $4,995/month. It also includes a full dining room, two gas fireplaces, and a private roof deck.
↑ A Chelsea duplex with very high ceilings and two bedrooms is asking $5,000/month. It also has an additional half bath, a lot of exposed brick, and a functional-looking fireplace.
↑ Outdoor space is the highlight of this Fort Greene garden apartment—it comes with a back patio and pretty substantial yard—but the inside isn't too shabby either. For $5,000/month, you get two bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, and an attractive, updated kitchen.
↑ And in Williamsburg, this three-bed, two-and-a-half bath duplex is going for $4,995/month. The exposed ceiling beams on the top floor might not be the most appealing, but they would come in handy if you ever need to, say, air dry five blankets at once.
