What $2,500/Month Can Rent You in New York City

New, 21 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: $2,500/month.


↑ In Downtown Brooklyn, this one-bedroom apartment in a new doorman building is available for $2,500 per month. In addition to the usual new-building amenities—fitness center, residents' lounge—the apartment also comes with a storage unit.


↑ This apartment on West 125th Street in Harlem has what appears to be a combination kitchen-laundry room (or, you know, a washer-dryer next to the fridge). The gut-renovated two-bedroom also has exposed brick walls.


↑ For $2,550, there's this garden-level one-bedroom in Fort Greene. It has a railroad layout with an exceptionally long bedroom, as well as a small patio just off the living room.


↑ A Greenwich Village studio priced at $2,500 is in a great location just off of Sixth Avenue. The listing touts the apartment's hardwood floors and new stainless-steel appliances, and while there's no bathtub, the bathroom itself looks shiny and new.


↑ Up in Harlem, a 900-square-foot two-bedroom is available for $2,500, and one of those bedrooms appears large enough to fit a bunk bed, should you be so inclined. The building has a laundry room and a communal garden.


↑ There aren't many photos available for a $2,500 studio at 45-45 Center Boulevard in Long Island City—presumably, the broker is hoping that the building's amenities, which include a private pool and sand volleyball court, will lure renters.
