See what $8,500/month rents in neighborhoods like Soho, Downtown Brooklyn, and the West Village

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 $8,500.

↑ The brokerbabble for this Upper West Side four- bedroom refers to it as a “Parisian style condo,” which actually isn’t too far off. The prewar pad, renting for $8,500/month, touts a renovated kitchen, decent-sized living and dining rooms with northern exposures, and eight large closets (including one walk-in).

↑ $8,500/month rents you this sprawling triplex in Prospect Heights. There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms that cover about 3,000 square feet of space. The space features plenty of vintage details like decorative moldings, pocket doors, and a clawfoot tub.

↑ In the West Village, this sunny railroad style apartment is accessed through a private elevator and offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 10-foot ceilings, and a gorgeous open kitchen with sleek cherry cabinets, and a huge island. Rent is $8,500/month.

Another penthouse, this time in Downtown Brooklyn, is also going for $8,500/month. This one is a loft-like corner unit with an open floor plan, and it has a spiral staircase, an open chef’s kitchen, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, huge windows with sweeping views of the city, and a private terrace.

↑ Score this furnished floor-through loft in Soho for $8,500/month. It comes with 12-foot tin ceilings, exposed brick that has been white washed, and oversized windows. The apartment encompasses 1,350 square feet of space with two bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms, and lots of natural light.

↑ This option may seem a bit pricey for Harlem but bear with us. On West 131st Street, $8,500/month rents you three floors within a lovely 20th century townhouse. If you love exposed brick, there’s lots of it within this home along with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, 18-foot ceilings, three fireplaces, and a massive skylight.
