See what $2,000/month gets you in Harlem, Astoria, and the Upper East Side

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 $2,000/month.

Bohemia Realty Group.

↑ First, there’s a newly renovated one-bedroom in Harlem, though the photos are of a similar staged apartment within the building. The listing notes that the kitchen has been kitted out with new stainless steel appliances and the hardwood floors have been spruced up, too. Asking price is $1,950/month.

Spire Group.

↑ For $1,950/month, there’s also this 1,000-square-foot one-bedroom apartment in Bay Ridge. The pre-war pad has a simple layout, and comes with high ceilings, refinished hardwood floors, a windowed eat-in kitchen, and plenty of natural light.

Lang Realty LLC.

↑ In Brooklyn’s Weeksville neighborhood, a two-bedroom on Eastern Parkway is going for $1,995/month. Exposed brick walls and hardwood floors are accompanied by a few modern updates, notably the revamped kitchen.

↑ A compact one-bedroom in Astoria is going for an even $2,000/month. The space is on the small side, featuring a tight but well-equipped kitchen, a modest bedroom, and a full kitchen. This upside is that it’s located just a block away from bustling Steinway Street.

↑ On the Upper East Side, another one-bedroom is going for $2,099/month. Among its features are exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and two large closets. The unit is located within a walk-up building, but luckily it’s only one flight up.

↑ And finally, for $1,950/month, there’s this updated two-bedroom in Mott Haven. The open-concept apartment comes with a modern kitchen, brick walls, fair-sized bedrooms, and a decent amount of sunlight.
