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 $5,100.
↑ Overwhelming "HOME" sign aside, this Williamsburg two-bedroom has plenty of nice things going for it, including a view: it's located in 1N4th, one of the glassy towers on the waterfront. It comes with amenities like a built-in washer/dryer and a spiffy kitchen, along with access to the building's outdoor pool, fitness center, and more. The ask: $5,100 per month.
↑ On East 57th Street, at the border of the Upper East Side and Midtown East, there's this two-bedroom apartment with a large common area. The unit has plenty of storage space in both the kitchen and the common areas, and it's asking $5,100 per month.
↑ A converted Brooklyn Law School dorm in Brooklyn Heights now holds luxury apartments, including this two-bedroom asking $5,150 per month. The listing touts its "vintage feel, modern appeal," which translates into updated finishes in the units themselves, but a more traditional look for the building.
↑ This one-bedroom in the Financial District is a corner unit, which means it gets plenty of light and has a little breakfast nook. It also has a lot of storage—two walk-in closets, according to the listing—along with building amenities like outdoor space.
↑ And finally, in Park Slope, the first floor of a townhouse comes with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a backyard for $5,100 per month. There are charming features like a bay window and exposed brick, along with new kitchen appliances and a revamped bathroom.
