New York City rent comparison: What $2,200 gets you right now

See what $2,200/month rents in neighborhoods like Hell’s Kitchen, Williamsburg, and Brooklyn Heights

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly 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 renting around $2,200.

↑ In Hell’s Kitchen, a tranquil loft-like studio is renting for $2,200 a month. The space offers 500 square feet, and has plenty of pre-war charm.

↑ This 1,100-square-foot apartment in Briarwood is going for $2,200. The kitchen is incredibly small given the apartment’s space, but there are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a generous storage closet.

↑ Way up in Riverdale, $2,187 will rent you a two-bedroom apartment that gets plenty of natural light. The apartment has been gut renovated to make way for a new kitchen, bathroom, and hardwood floors.

↑ A cozy one-bedroom on the Upper East Side comes fully furnished and is renting for $2,200. The apartment is bright and inviting, even if the kitchen and living room are rather tiny. It’s between Second and Third Avenues, giving access to the nearby 6 train and (possibly) the Second Avenue Subway, assuming that opens on time.

↑ Rent this junior one-bedroom in one of Brooklyn Heights’s lovely brownstones for $2,200. The apartment’s highlights include French doors, high ceilings, and a charming brick fireplace.

↑ Last but not least is this spacious one-bedroom in Williamsburg. The apartment is flooded with sunlight and features an open-concept living and dining room, a large bedroom, and ample closet space, as per its listing. It's asking an even $2,200.
