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 $2,900/month.
There’s not much to this one-bedroom in Greenwich Village: It has a small but serviceable kitchen, a queen-size bedroom, and built-ins. But its location—on Thompson Street just north of Houston Street—might be worth the $2,895/month rent, for someone who wants to be in the thick of the Village.
In Long Island City, a one-bedroom in Rockrose’s 42-story rental tower is going for $2,895/month, which is the net effective rent (it also comes with a move-in bonus). The apartment itself is spacious, and the location is close to plenty of LIC’s amenities: SculptureCenter, the bar Dutch Kills, and a couple of subway stations.
Some things to know about this singular Upper West Side studio, renting for $2,895/month: It has Central Park views; it’s in a building with a gym and laundry room; and yes, it comes furnished.
This Bed-Stuy apartment is pretty huge, with four bedrooms spread throughout 1,400 square feet of space. In addition to all of that room, the apartment has two bathrooms, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. It’s renting for an even $2,900/month.
Finally, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a two-bedroom in a new building is asking $2,900/month, without a broker’s fee. The kitchen has high-end appliances, there’s solid oak flooring, and big windows let in plenty of light. It’s a short walk from the building to the Winthrop Street subway stop.
Which NYC apartment would you choose for around $2,900/month?
