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.
A 570-square-foot studio in Astoria, close to some of the neighborhood’s best cultural attractions, is renting for an even $2,000/month. The apartment comes with oak flooring, an open kitchen with custom cabinets, large windows, and a washer/dryer. It’s a 10-minute walk to the closest subway, but Socrates Sculpture Park is only a couple of blocks away.
For $1,995/month, there is this one-bedroom in South Slope, just a few blocks north of Green-Wood Cemetery. The apartment spans 800 square feet and comes with a spacious windowed eat-in kitchen, wood floors, and a smaller not-quite-bedroom that could serve as a home office.
In East Harlem, a one-bedroom with a renovated kitchen, a queen-sized bedroom, and a washer/dryer is going for $1,950/month. The building offers an on-site super, and good news for pet lovers: it’s also pet-friendly. It’s about two blocks from the 6 at 103rd Street.
Head to Washington Heights, where a newly renovated two-bedroom can be yours for $2,000/month. Highlights here include exposed brick, hardwood floors, high ceilings, queen-sized rooms, and a brand new kitchen with a breakfast bar. Harlem River Park is barely a block away.
And finally, there’s another two-bedroom—this one in Bushwick—that’s renting for $1,950. The newly renovated railroad-style apartments has a spacious living room, an open kitchen with custom white cabinets, a master bedroom with three windows, and access to the home’s shared garden. It’s situated between the L, J, and M trains, which are going to be majorly affected by the L train shutdown in a few months.
