See what $5,600/month gets you in neighborhoods like Boerum Hill, Tribeca, and Midtown

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 $5,600/month.

Anchor Associates.

↑ A two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom in Midtown is asking $5,650/month. Its crisp, sleek design includes 12-foot beamed ceilings, a Pullman-style kitchen with built-in stainless steel appliances, oversized arched windows, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a washer/dryer.

Park River.

↑ This loft-like unit in Boerum Hill has three bedrooms and two bathrooms for $5,500/month. Its industrial details have been polished over for a more elegant design that includes oak floors, large windows, high ceilings that are soundproofed, and a modest balcony.

Milford Management.

↑ In Battery Park City, an 811-square-foot one-bedroom wants $5,600/month. The apartment itself is simple in its design without any major standout details, but the views of Manhattan and the Hudson River are pretty great.

↑ A sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom in Kips Bay comes with the potential to be converted into a three-bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, hardwood floors, a small chef’s kitchen, and a washer/dryer are among its features. Rent is an even $5,600/month.

↑ If you’re looking for a true industrial loft, this studio in the Financial District is about as raw as it gets. Its $5,550/month price tag gets you 1,200 square feet of space, wood beams and columns, high ceilings, and exposed brick. The wood floors appear to be fairly new and the kitchen has been given a modern look as well.

Bond New York.

↑ And finally, 1,500-square-foot duplex in Tribeca with prewar charm is asking $5,600/month. The expansive one-bedroom loft features an open kitchen, massive windows, a decorative fireplace, central air, and a private outdoor space.
