New York rent comparison: What $2,300/month gets you right now

See what around $2,300 rents you in neighborhoods like Bed-Stuy, Corona, and Harlem

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 $2,300/month.

↑ Located on the second floor of a three-story rental building in Bed-Stuy, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment is asking $2,295/month. The apartment features large, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and two decorative fireplaces.

↑ At the intersection of East 6th Street and Second Avenue, this 625-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bathroom rental also wants $2,295/month. The no-frills East Village home comes with a skylight in the living room, exposed brick, and not too much else.

↑ In Harlem, this one-bedroom apartment was recently renovated and comes fitted with oak flooring, stainless steel appliances, and noise-insulated walls (a huge plus for NYC). The building has amenities like a gym, an on-site laundry room, and bike storage. For all of that, you will have to shell out $2,300/month.

↑ Part of the massive LeFrak City complex in Corona, Queens, this two-bedroom is on the market for $2,280/month. The light-filled apartment measures just a little over 1,000 square feet. Residents here have access to on-site laundry and views of lovely landscaped gardens.

↑ In Flatbush, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom rental comes with stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, plenty of closet space, and granite countertops. There’s also a laundry facility in the building. For all of that this apartment is asking $2,300/month.

↑ This spacious one-bedroom in Williamsburg is a bit of schlep from the nearest subway stop, but it does have some nice features. These include the high ceilings, large windows, a dishwasher in-unit, a Juliet balcony, and access to a common back yard and a roof deck. All of that costs $2,300/month.
