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 $2,600.

↑ A two-bedroom duplex in Astoria is renting for $2,650/month. The apartment features two-and-a-half bathrooms, a small but modern kitchen, and lots of natural light.

↑ Another duplex, this time a one-bedroom on the Upper West Side, is going for $2,600/month. This one boasts exposed brick, a spiral staircase, a small eat-in kitchen, and two bathrooms.

↑ $2,625/month rents this 1,100-square-foot apartment in Briarwood. The spacious unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and pretty decent lighting. It’s also nice that the apartment is rent stabilized.
