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 $2,900.
↑ The listing for this colorful East Village apartment isn’t heavy on details, but luckily, the space speaks for itself. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit has bright hardwood floors, crown molding, a renovated eat-in kitchen, and a good deal of natural light, for $2,953/month.
↑ A 900-square-foot apartment in Ridgewood, Queens with three bedrooms and two bathrooms is asking $2,895/month. After a gut renovation, the light-filled space features a modern kitchen with new appliances and plenty of closet space. Sorry, dog lovers—only cats are allowed.
↑ Within a lovely Park Slope brownstone, this prewar one-bedroom apartment is delivered furnished and wants $2,900/month. Its many details include two decorative fireplaces, high ceilings, crown moldings, and an updated kitchen. There’s a good amount of sunlight, and it overlooks bustling Union Street.

↑ Rent this Long Island City “luxury loft,” as the broker lingo calls it, for $2,900/month. Though it has only one bedroom and one bathroom, there’s 875 square feet to play with. Its 14-foot ceilings, open layout, and wall o’casement windows help the space feel even larger.
↑ This Upper East Side one-bedroom is practical and lacking bells and whistles, but for $2,875/month, it does the trick. The kitchen is rather small, but details like French doors, plus the overall brightness of the space, may help you look past it.
