New, 2 comments

See what $8,000/month rents in neighborhoods like the Financial District, Soho, Williamsburg, 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 $8,000.

↑ A 2,200-square-foot triplex in Kips Bay is renting for $7,950/month. The abundant space is clearly the winner here but the architectural details, including dramatic arched floor-to-ceiling windows, aren’t bad either. Other details include a wood-burning fireplace, a spiral staircase, and a private elevator entrance. [Floorplan]

Citi Habitats.

↑ An even $8,000/month rents—for a short term, anyway—this industrial apartment in Williamsburg. The duplex is already furnished and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a massive open chef’s kitchen, and a terrace. Among its decorative features are polished concrete floors, beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a galvanized bathtub.


↑ In Soho, an elegant loft with two bedrooms and two bathrooms is asking $7,950/month. The duplex spans 1,200 square feet, and has an open layout and 10-foot high ceilings. Iron columns, exposed brick, wood beams and moldings blend with contemporary updates like the open kitchen with custom cabinetry and the granite bathrooms. [Floorplan]

For $7,950/month, there’s a three-bedroom, two and a half bathroom apartment on State Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Measuring 2,200 square feet, this full-floor abode is accessed by a keyed elevator and is lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, shiny hardwood floors, and sleek finishes. [Floorplan]

Halstead Property.

↑ If you’re going to drop $7,995 on rent each month, why not make it on a apartment along Billionaire’s Row? This corner two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment spans 1,350 square feet within a CetraRuddy-designed condo on the Hell’s Kitchen end of 57th Street. It includes a marble-clad kitchen with stainless steel appliances, many closets, and large windows that provide views of Central Park and the city’s skyline. [Floorplan]

↑ Last but not least, there’s a three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on Wall Street for $8,000/month. The description highlights the apartment’s “condo finishes” that include a sleek kitchen with built-in appliances, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and six-foot windows.
