See what you can get in neighborhoods like the Upper West Side, Fort Greene, and Bushwick

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 $3,600/month.

A lovely one-bedroom, one and a half bathroom in an “old-world” Fort Greene brownstone is renting for $3,650/month. The space features original wood floors, crown molding, two decorative marble fireplaces, and French doors. The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances and there is also an in-unit washer/dryer.

Head to the Upper East Side where an 869-square-foot corner one-bedroom is asking $3,600/month. The wide open space has hardwood floors, oversized windows that provide amazing views of the skyline, and what the listing promises is a king-sized master bedroom with a walk-in closet.

In East Flatbush, a 1,600-square-foot apartment with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a private elevator entrance wants an even $3,600/month. Per the listing, the apartment resides on the building’s “penthouse floor” and there are three balconies. There is one caveat: the nearest subway stations are roughly a 15-minute walk away.

For $3,590/month, there’s this duplex apartment on the Upper West Side. It comes with two queen-sized bedrooms (both with en-suite bathrooms), 12-foot ceilings, a decorative living room fireplace, a modest kitchen, a storage loft, and a private roof deck.

After a gut renovation, a light-filled apartment in Bushwick, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, is going for $3,575/month. The unit has exposed brick, a spacious living room, queen-sized bedrooms, a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar and a wine cooler; and its own private outdoor space.
