New York City rent comparison: What $2,200 gets you

New, 4 comments

See what $2,200/month gets you in neighborhoods like the East Village, Brooklyn Heights, and Murray Hill

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 $2,200.

↑ This Brooklyn Heights studio is small, but in an unbeatable location: It’s on Columbia Heights, which is within spitting distance of the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. For $2,200 per month, you get a decorative fireplace, a not-unreasonably-small kitchen, and lots of light.

↑ Another studio—this time in the East Village, and asking $2,250 per month—is a bit smaller, with a tiny kitchen and enough room for what appears to be a loveseat and a full-size bed. But hey, someone will snap it up—especially considering the fact that it’s located on bustling East 9th Street, near Tompkins Square Park.

↑ In Clinton Hill, a garden-level one-bedroom on Greene Avenue is asking $2,200 per month. The apartment has some lovely decorative features, including a decorative fireplace and an exposed-brick wall. The kitchen and bedroom are both rather sizable.

↑ Yes, it’s another studio—this time in Murray Hill, and asking $2,250 per month. This one has been recently renovated, with a brand new kitchen (peep those fancy appliances) and bathroom. There’s also access to the building’s communal roof, if you need more space every once in a while.

↑ If you thought we were done showing you studios, well, sorry! Here’s another one in Bedford-Stuyvesant, and this one does have some nice stuff going for it: a big window that lets in lots of light, and a brand new kitchen. It’s asking $2,200 per month.

↑ And finally, here’s a true one-bedroom in a Harlem rowhouse that’s asking an even $2,200 per month. It has plenty of space for a single person or a couple, and the listing says there are two walk-in closets for additional storage space. The kitchen looks pretty swell, too.
