See what $3,000/month gets you in Greenwich Village, Williamsburg, 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 $3,000/month.

↑This large studio loft in Williamsburg is renting for $3,020/month. The industrial-chic apartment comes with painted, beamed black concrete ceilings, an exposed brick wall, maple hardwood floors, and large windows.

WIRE International Realty

↑A 654-square-foot apartment in Greenpoint is renting for an even $3,000/month. The sun-filled space offers one bedroom, one bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows, a sizable kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a private terrace that measures 155 square feet.

Nicholas C. Abate Real Estate

↑The straightforward alcove studio in Greenwich Village is asking $2,995/month. While the apartment skips out on all of the bells and whistles, it does offer a decent amount of space, along with plenty of storage room. It’s also just two blocks away from the two 14th Street train stations where you can catch the 1, 2, 3 or the F, M, and L train.

Douglas Elliman

↑In Gramercy, another alcove studio is going for $2,950/month. The apartment boasts high beamed ceilings, original parquet wood floors, a windowed kitchen with lots of cabinets, and a view over 22nd Street.

↑Rent this one-bedroom with a kind of dated charm on the Upper West Side for $3,000/month. The apartment is short on the upgrades, but it does offer plenty of space, high ceilings, a decorative fireplace, and a private balcony. It’s also located less than a block away from Central Park, so that’s something.

↑Last but not least, a one-bedroom on the penthouse floor of a luxury building in Midtown wants $3,000/month. An open-concept design is complimented by large windows that allow for plenty of natural light, a small but fully equipped kitchen, and a decent amount of storage space.
