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 $3,000.
↑ In Harlem, a rather large (900 square feet!) two-bedroom apartment in a "modern boutique condo building" has plenty of amenities, including a washer-dryer in-unit and a totally revamped kitchen. It also has two bedrooms and lots of storage space.
↑ For $3,000 per month, you can snag a 32nd-floor studio apartment in New York By Gehry, the starchitect's twisty Financial District building. In addition to the typical high-end finishes and appliances, the apartment comes access to the building's "never ending" list of amenities, including a pool, housekeeping service, and an outdoor lounge.
↑ Once again, a one-bedroom in a new building comes with the usual amenities: a gym, a roof terrace, walk-in closets, big windows, a private balcony, yada yada yada. This one is in Williamsburg, and is asking $3,000 per month.
↑ This Upper East Side studio has a bit of an odd layout—it has a long hallway, a long kitchen, and a big common space—but the bathroom and kitchen are both new, and it's asking $3,000.
↑ In the West Village, $3,000 per month rents a studio on charming Jane Street. Though the photos here are staged, it gives you a decent idea of what could be done with the space—it has a foyer large enough to accommodate a small table, and a decent-sized common area.
↑ And finally, in Park Slope, there's this duplex one-bedroom only a couple of blocks from Prospect Park. The apartment has a loft (currently staged as a nursery) and a private roof deck, although there's only one bathroom in the whole joint. It's asking $3,000 per month.
