New, 4 comments

See what $2,500 can rent you in Brooklyn neighborhoods like Williamsburg, Bushwick, and Brooklyn Heights

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 looking at units in Brooklyn renting for around $2,500/month.

↑ In Brooklyn Heights, $2,500/month rents a snug studio with a washer/dryer and dishwasher in an elevator building. The studio is on the ground floor, so even if said elevator in the renovated building is out, it's not an issue here.

↑ In Williamsburg, a one-bedroom on Driggs Avenue comes with an eat-in kitchen kitted out with new appliances, as well as a a small office space. There's a communal backyard for the building, and the unit itself is on the second floor—all for $2,500 per month.

↑ There are a lot of charming details in this Windsor Terrace one-bedroom, including vintage-y light fixtures and lovely detailing in some of the transoms. The kitchen was recently redone with new cabinets and appliances, and if the listings photos are any indication, it gets lots of light.

↑ In Crown Heights, just a few blocks from Prospect Park, a spacious one-bedroom is on the market for $2,500/month. The kitchen is all new and includes a dishwasher, and the apartment has decent closet space, Building amenities include a roofdeck, elevator, and part-time doorman.

↑ On Greenpoint's bustling Franklin Street, this $2,500 one-bedroom comes with a kitchen large enough to classify as eat-in, a bathroom with a cast-iron tub, and a bedroom big enough to fit a queen-sized bed.

↑ A two-bedroom apartment located off of the J and Z trains is up for grabs in Bushwick. The listing touts the apartment's "brand new bathroom," but the bathroom pictured appears to be less new than that. The apartment also comes with a home office, and some original details. It's asking $2,500/month, no Kilz primer included.
