See what $2,150 per month rents in NYC neighborhoods like the Upper West Side, Park Slope, and Astoria

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 around NYC renting for around $2,150/month.

↑ This cute one-bedroom in Hell's Kitchen, asking $2,150, comes with some features that help it stand out: a fireplace (decorative, but still), a remodeled kitchen, and two skylights that help bring natural light in. (Some cons: no pets are allowed, and there's a $250 fee to apply for the place.)

↑ In Astoria, $2,150 gets you a large, if slightly unremarkable, renovated one-bedroom. There aren't many photos, but what they show looks clean and bright: the kitchen is brand-new, the floors are all shiny, and there are plenty of windows.

↑ The building that this Kensington one-bedroom is located in has plenty of curb appeal. The apartment itself has a slightly disjointed look—the kitchen is all tones of black and grey, while the common areas have regular hardwood floors—but it's still quite nice, with a dishwasher, new bathroom, new windows, and more.

↑ If you can hang with a loft bed, this Upper West Side studio may be just the place for you. It's cozy (read: small), but has plenty of charm thanks to an exposed brick wall with a decorative fireplace. The kitchen is small but functional, and it's asking $2,175/month.

↑ Be warned: the listing for this Park Slope one-bedroom cautions that the photos are from "a VERY similar unit," so there's a chance it may not be as nice as this. Located on the second floor of its building, the apartments comes with new kitchen appliances, a redone bathroom, and a queen-sized bedroom, all for $2,150 per month.

↑ And finally, in the heart of the East Village, this cute studio has a small alcove that, according to the listing, can fit a queen-sized bed. (And hey, the photo seems to back that claim up.) There's plenty of storage space, and the common area has a bit of a shabby-chic thing going on; it's asking $2,150 per month.
