See what you can get in neighborhoods like Tribeca, Cobble Hill, and Chelsea

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 $5,000/month.

First up is this Cobble Hill townhouse, offered as a furnished short-term rental for $5,000/month. The charming home has two bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, oak floors, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a dining room with beamed ceilings, a deck, a skylight, and a master bathroom with a clawfoot tub and heated towel racks.

$4,950/month rents this three-bedroom on the Upper West Side, complete with an open-concept layout and plenty of light. The apartment has been renovated and now comes with a new chef’s kitchen with a breakfast bar, a revamped bathroom, and oversized windows that give view to Central Park.

In Maspeth, Queens, a three-bedroom, two and a half bathroom house is going for $4,995/month. The two-story home has two spacious living rooms, a huge windowed kitchen with stainless steel appliances, an upper level with an open layout (perfect for a recreation area), and an expansive backyard with a driveway that can fit two cars.

While the photos appear to showcase an alcove studio, the floorplan notes that this Tribeca apartment, located on Duane Street between Broadway and Church Street, is actually a one-bedroom. The apartment features a sizable living and dining room, a contemporary kitchen with sleek cabinets, and a walk-in closet. It’s renting for $5,025/month.

Last but not least, there’s a two-bedroom triplex condo in Chelsea that’s renting for $4,995/month. It has a renovated kitchen with a breakfast bar, a decorative fireplace, exposed brick walls, oak floors, a washer/dryer, and a multi-level private roof deck.
