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 $4,250/month.

On the third floor of a four-story walkup building in Park Slope is this 1,008-square-foot penthouse, asking an even $4,250/month. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open kitchen with a wine fridge, a master bedroom suite with a walk-in closet, and a private roof deck.

Head to the Upper West Side, where a three-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom apartment with exposed brick, an open kitchen, and an in-unit washer/dryer is going for $4,298/month. The apartment also has a decorative fireplace, subway-tiled bathrooms, and several windows that allow for a fair amount of natural light. The 1 train’s 79th Street station is less than a five-minute walk away.

For $4,200/month, there’s this light and airy three-bedroom, two-bathroom in Long Island City. The bright space features an open layout with wood floors throughout, a modern kitchen with a breakfast bar, oversized windows, and a private balcony.

A condo in the Financial District is being offered as a rental for $4,250/month. The apartment spans 1,005 square feet, and has 13-foot ceilings, dark wood floors, a small kitchen with built-in appliances, a walk-in closet, and plenty of custom finishes throughout.

And in Williamsburg, $4,250 rents a two-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex spanning nearly 1,400 square feet. There are massive windows that fill the home with light, an open kitchen with lacquered cabinetry, a laundry room with a washer/dryer, and a lower level that can be used as a artist’s studio or a recreation room.
