See what $2,000/month rents in Manhattan neighborhoods like Harlem, the West Village, and the Upper East Side

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 in Manhattan renting around $2,000/month.

↑ In the West Village, a tiny but charming studio is asking $1,995/month. The listing describes it as a “carriage house studio” that’s located on the block-long Cornelia Street, and the apartment comes with a wood-burning fireplace, exposed brick, and access to a shared courtyard. On the downside, the kitchen is tiny and there’s room for a bed—and not much else.

↑ If space is what you’re after, this Inwood two-bedroom, asking $1,950/month, may be more your speed. It has a new kitchen (albeit one that’s open to the rest of the living room), a sizable bathroom, and a decent amount of space; it’s also near Fort Tryon Park and plenty of transportation options (or, well, the end of the A train, anyway).

↑ Another studio, this one on West 102nd Street, is also going for $1,995/month. This one has a decently-sized common area—big enough to separate a full bed from the rest of the space (here’s a floorplan)—along with a separate, but small, kitchen. There’s also access to a shared roof deck.

↑ A spacious, new one-bedroom on 150th Street in Harlem is renting for an even $2,000/month. The building itself sits right on Jackie Robinson Park, and this particular apartment has nice amenities (a dishwasher and laundry machine), a fancy kitchen, and big, bright rooms.

↑ Another studio, this time on the Upper East Side, isn’t huge, but it has all the basics a tenant looking to pay under $2,000/month might need. The kitchen and bathroom have both been refreshed, there’s a nicely sized closet, and two windows let in some light. It’s going for $1,995/month.

↑ Finally, a one-bedroom in Washington Heights is going for $1,975/month. It’s a basic, but elegant, space, with a new kitchen, big windows, recessed lighting, and—per the brokerbabble—“fantastic prewar character.” It’s close to the Hudson River, along with Audubon Terrace.
