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 $3,400.
↑ First up is a Boerum Hill two-bedroom on Smith Street, which comes with a nearly 200-square-foot private deck. The apartment is spacious with a washer-dryer and a new kitchen; the tenant, however, is on the hook for heat and hot water. It's asking $3,400.
↑ In Chelsea, a one-bedroom in a lovely brick building has a few unique features, including a wood-burning fireplace, built-in shelving, and high-end appliances. It also happens to be located in a co-op building, so "rental lease is subject to board approval" (yikes).
↑ This Financial District studio is relatively small—it is a studio, after all—and also comes fully furnished and move-in ready. It's $3,400 per month, and there's an extra utilities package that includes wireless Internet service, cable, and more.
↑ In Astoria, a three-bedroom renting for $3,400 has "bedrooms [that] can fit a bed plus furniture." Good to know. Details beyond that are few, but it's a no-fee rental and the building itself has a lovely courtyard.
↑ This Nomad studio is in a building called "Twenty9th Park Madison." Let that sink in for a bit. It does come furnished with items that maximize the small space, and there's access to amenities like a fitness center, playroom, and shared roof deck.
↑ Finally, in Park Slope, there's a two-bedroom with a renovated kitchen on the second floor of a townhouse. It's in a good neighborhood—close to plenty of trains and the Barclays Center—but alas, pets aren't allowed.
