See what you can get in neighborhoods like the East Village, Crown Heights, and Jamaica

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 $2,800/month.

A one-bedroom apartment in a landmarked East Village building can be yours for $2,800/month. Wood floors, exposed brick, and a decorative fireplace are among its original details, while modern touches include new stainless steel kitchen appliances. The bedroom has a built-in platform bed and though the windowed bathroom isn’t pictured, brokerbabble calls it “antique.”

In Jamaica, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is going for an even $2,800/month. The space measures 1,040 square feet and includes a spacious living room with high ceilings, large windows, a windowed kitchen, and light-filled bedrooms. The E and F line’s Parson Boulevard subway station is less than a five-minute walk away.

After a renovation, this bright three-bedroom in Crown Heights is renting for $2,800/month. There are wood floors throughout, recessed lighting, a small but well-equipped kitchen, and plenty of windows.

For $2,750, there’s this renovated one-bedroom in Greenpoint, complete with a custom kitchen, hardwood floors, a mudroom, a washer/dryer, and a marble-covered bathroom. The apartment comes with a private roof deck that has views of Manhattan’s skyline.

Last but not least is this multi-level one-bedroom in the West Village. There are some modern upgrades: a new (albeit tiny) kitchen, an in-unit washer/dryer, and a fully tiled bathroom with a walk-in shower. Other flourishes include exposed brick walls and a decorative fireplace. Asking price is $2,795/month.
