New, 4 comments

See what $4,000/month rents you in neighborhood like Tribeca, Downtown Brooklyn, Midtown, 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 $4,000/month.

Citi Habitats.

↑ A 755-square-foot duplex loft in Williamsburg is asking $4,029/month. This one-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom space is located within the Printhouse Lofts building on North 10th Street, and has historic details like beamed ceilings, wood columns, exposed brick walls, and huge windows.

REAL New York.

↑ On the Lower East Side, a small one-bedroom on East Houston Street wants $3,990/month. The apartment measures 500 square feet but seems larger due to its open layout and space-enhancing elements, such as floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, and generous closet space.


↑ For an even $4,000/month, rent this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Downtown Brooklyn. The light-filled apartment is simple but elegant, with lovely views of the city’s skyline. Since the building (at the Giovanni) is fairly new, all of the interiors are still in good condition.


↑ Another option for $4,000/month is this one-bedroom condo in Midtown that’s being offered as a rental unit. The space is pretty and practical: the custom chef’s kitchen is equipped with built-in stainless steel appliances, the living room has nine-foot ceilings and large windows, and it comes with a washer/dryer and central A/C.

↑ For $3,995/month, there’s this modern one-bedroom on Barclay Street in the Financial District (though the listing claims it’s in Tribeca) with a modestly sized living room, an elegant kitchen, and lots of large windows. The building offers some nice amenities, such as 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, and a 50-foot pool.

↑ And lastly, there’s this Upper East Side two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment that’s asking $4,000/month. It comes with a sunken living room, a lengthy kitchen, sizable bedrooms, and lots of natural light.
