New York City Rent Comparison: What $2,000 Gets You In Brooklyn

New, 23 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 only looking at units in Brooklyn and our price: $2,000/month.


↑ This gorgeous two-bedroom apartment spans 1,000 square feet and is located in a townhouse in Bushwick, according to the brokerbabble. The apartment has all the minimal finishings you'd expect of a space in Bushwick as well as large windows that provide tons of light, hardwood floors, and beautiful wooden doors and paneling. The only thing that goes against this place that's renting for $2,000 per month: no pets allowed.

↓ This pet-friendly one-bedroom in Greenpoint is configured as a railroad apartment, so it's likely better for a couple or someone living alone. Thankfully, the bedroom actually has a window (something you don't find in a lot of railroad units), and the kitchen is brand new.


↓ Located in Kensington, this spacious two-bedroom apartment boasts high ceilings, central heat and air conditioning, and "European style" fixtures in the bathroom. The apartment is located in a rather modern looking townhouse, and the lobby, what with its geometric light fixtures and tin walls, is definitely worth checking out.


↓ This Windsor Terrace one bedroom doesn't quite live up to that designation—the floorplan shows what appears to be a studio with an oversized living space. Still, it comes with lots of little conveniences—a washer/dryer, stainless-steel appliances, huge windows, and the like. And it's priced at $2,000 per month. Note: While it's technically listed as a studio, you'll notice the brokerbabble calls it a one-bedroom.


↓ This Ditmas Park one-bedroom apartment comes with a pretty dining alcove, and is located within an art deco building, according to the brokerbabble. Some of the other great features of this unit include a galley kitchen, a large entry foyer, and hardwood floors. It's all priced for $2,000 per month.


↓ Located on a lovely Prospect Heights block, this studio apartment has some perks, like a dishwasher and a spacious living area. The downsides: It's on the ground floor, and the kitchen appears to be right next to the bed area. (But that's probably something you can change if need be.)
