See what $3,400 rents you in neighborhoods like the Lower East Side, West Village, and Downtown Brooklyn

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 $3,400.

↑ A charming, sun-filled two-bedroom in the West Village can be yours for $3,395/month. There’s tons of exposed brick here, along with French doors, arched windows, and a modern eat-in kitchen.

Equity Residential.

↑ A 750-square-foot apartment in Yorkville is renting for $3,415/month. The no-frills apartment is pretty modest, with a decent-sized living room and sizable bedroom, and one bathroom. Other than that, what you see is what you get. [Floorplan]

Nolita Group.

↑ On the Lower East Side, a renovated two-bedroom seeks $3,400/month. It’s on the third floor of a walk-up building, but if you can get past that, it offers a new chef’s kitchen, rooms that accommodate queen-sized beds, and a bathroom lined with subway tile.

Citi Habitats.

↑ In the East Village, a sleek one-bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, a large kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a bright living room for $3,389/month. The space also features a washer/dryer unit and lots of storage space.


↑ $3,391/month rents this one-bedroom within a full-service building in Downtown Brooklyn. The apartment spans 725 square feet, and comes with high ceilings, oak floors, oversized windows, a chef’s kitchen with a washer/dryer, and a small balcony. [Floorplan]

Douglas Elliman.

↑ And finally, a 553-square-foot studio in the Flatiron District is going for $3,400/month. The apartment has 13-foot ceilings, large windows, a small open kitchen with quartz counters, and an elevated sleeping loft. [Floorplan]
