New York City Rent Comparison: What $3,000 Gets You

New, 12 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, we're looking at apartments around $3,000/month that are pet-friendly.

↑ In Hamilton Heights, $2,950 yields a lovely pre-war two-bedroom that comes with plenty of original details, including a decorative fireplace and crown molding. The kitchen, however, has gotten a modern update, and the building itself has an on-site super and an elevator. Both cats and dogs are allowed. ↓ While it's unlikely that the adorable pooch in these listings photos comes with the place, its presence does make it clear that this Williamsburg two-bedroom is pet-friendly. The apartment is in a prime location, and comes with a dishwasher, plenty of storage space, and "massive bedrooms" that can accommodate queen-sized beds.

↓ In Midtown West, a one-bedroom with a tiny balcony is asking $3,000 per month, and comes with a king-sized bedroom, a galley kitchen, and a sizable living room.

↓ What this pet-friendly, renovated Park Slope one-bedroom is lacking in old-timey charm, it makes up for in modern amenities—central air, new kitchen appliances, and an in-unit washer-dryer.

↓ The listing for this Upper East Side one-bedroom touts the fact that it's "spaced like a real home," which is true if your idea of a real home is not, you know, an actual house. But regardless, the apartment has a king-sized bedroom, a normal kitchen, and an office.

↓ And finally in the East Village, this two-bedroom has "great pre-war character" in a "jazzy" location (the broker's words, not ours). Dogs are allowed but cats, inexplicably, aren't; but there are two big bedrooms for Fido to scamper around in, should you choose.
