New York rent comparison: What $2,300 rents you

See what $2,300 rents you on the Upper East Side, Park Slope, and Chelsea

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 $2,300/month.

↑ A sun-filled studio in a prewar Upper East Side building is going for $2,350/month. It’s large enough to accommodate a dining table and entertainment area, along with a decently-sized bed. The kitchen has also received a modest revamp.

↑ For $2,250/month, there’s this two-bedroom, one-bathroom in Harlem. The apartment is no-frills with a simple layout and details that include hardwood floors, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and decent sunlight.

↑ In Jackson Heights, another two-bedroom is going for $2,250. According to the listing, the place has received a full renovation and from what we can gather from the photos, that resulted in a sizable kitchen with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and fairly large rooms.

↑ This one-bedroom in Park Slope comes with oversized windows and lots of white painted exposed brick. One quibble: the unit looks more like a junior one-bedroom but all in all, it’s a nice enough space. The asking price is $2,250/month.

↑ Located directly across the street from a Rodney Park in South Williamsburg is this one-bedroom for $2,350/month. Its details include wooden frames, exposed brick, hardwood floors, and large kitchen with lots of cabinets.

↑ A petite Chelsea studio is available for $2,250/month. There isn’t much to say about this apartment other than it offers a full kitchen (albeit a tiny one) as well as high ceilings and hardwood floors. It’s also located just two blocks away from the 23rd Street station along the 1 line.
