See what you can get in neighborhoods like Park Slope, West Chelsea, and Flushing

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 $4,300/month.

In Midtown East, there’s this corner studio with floor-to-ceiling windows, a sleek chef’s kitchen, and views of Manhattan’s skyline and the East River. The open-concept space also offers an in-unit washer/dryer machine for added convenience. It’s going for an even $4,300/month.

This 800-square-foot one-bedroom, asking $4,250/month. is located near the High Line in West Chelsea. The duplex apartment has high ceilings, oversized windows, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), built-in storage, and a washer/dryer.

Head to Harlem, where an even $4,300/month rents a five-bedroom, two-bathroom home with 1,600 square feet over two floors. The lower level has a queen-sized bedroom, a laundry room, a bathroom, and storage space, while the upper level has four full-sized bedrooms, an open kitchen, and access to the apartment’s private patio.

After a full renovation, this light-filled two-bedroom in Park Slope is asking $4,267/month (this price reflects a net effective rent after two months free with an 18-month lease; gross rent is $4,800/month). It has two bedrooms, a windowed kitchen, and a washer/dryer unit, and the building is across the street from Prospect Park.

And finally, an entire house in Flushing wants $4,300/month. That price gets you four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, a grand staircase that connects the two floors, and embellished wood doors and molding. It is, however, far from both the Main Street and Mets-Willets Point subway stops.
