See what $4,000/month gets you in neighborhoods like Hell’s Kitchen, the west Village, Downtown Brooklyn, and more

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 $4,000.

↑ In the West Village, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo is renting for $3,950/month. The apartment is spread across 630 square feet and is decked out with a beautifully renovated kitchen, sunny living room, modest bedroom, and a balcony.

↑ The brokerbabble calls this Hamilton Heights two-bedroom, two-bathroom an “Uptown penthouse suite.” Whether that is a befitting description or not is subjective, but the space does come with nice features like exposed brick, renovated bathrooms, and a spiral staircase that leads to a private roof deck. Rent is $3,995/month.

↑ A 606-square-foot apartment in the Financial District (atop the W Downtown hotel) is asking $3,950/month. Not only is the sleek space fully furnished, it also boasts views of the Hudson River. The caveat: the living/kitchen/dining space is a bit tight.

↑ $4,050/month gets you this charming two-bedroom unit in Prospect Heights. Though it recently got a gut renovation, the apartment has prewar details like exposed brick and crown moldings combined with modern highlights like the remodeled kitchen and bathroom.

↑ This luxurious apartment in Hell’s Kitchen is asking $4,000/month. The unit offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and sweeping views of the city.

↑ In Downtown Brooklyn, a 779 square-foot apartment is asking $4,000/month. Its details include a chef’s kitchen, huge windows, lots of natural light, and a “designer bathroom.”
