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 $3,000.

↑Rent this renovated studio on West 26th Street in Chelsea for $3,000/month. The contemporary apartment features a sleek layout with a modern open kitchen, high ceilings, and a wall of windows. Building amenities include a fitness center, yoga studio, and private roof deck, to name a few.

↑In Park Slope, a large two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is going for $3,000/month. The sunny living room boasts shiny hardwood floors and exposed brick walls. In the kitchen, there is generous storage space along with stainless steel appliances and stone countertops.

↑Along First Avenue in Lenox Hill, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom is also going for $3,000/month. From the photos, the living room looks narrow but there are high ceilings, white brick walls, and a tiny bit of natural light. The small kitchen has stainless steel appliances and decent cabinet space while the bedrooms are both large enough to accommodate queen-sized beds.

↑Live in this practical one-bedroom at 7 Dekalb, a COOKFOX-designed tower at 70 Fleet Street in Downtown Brooklyn for $3,046/month. The apartment offers a simple layout with an abundance of oversized windows that allow for tons of sunlight to permeate the living space.

↑$3,000/month rents you this massive three-bedroom apartment on West 129th Street in Harlem. It has a simple layout with inlaid wood floors throughout the living and bedrooms. The apartment also has a narrow but lengthy galley kitchen, one full bathroom, and many windows and prewar touches throughout.

↑Last but not least, in Midtown, a one-bedroom is going for $3,000/month. Writing honestly, the apartment is a bit dated with its mirrored walls harkening back to the 80s. However, it’s nothing that a bit of redesigning can’t fix.
