See what you can get in neighborhoods like the West Village, Brighton Beach, and Harlem

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 $2,500/month.

Bold New York.

↑ In Brighton Beach, a spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit—billed as a penthouse, no less—is renting for $2,495/month. The apartment spans 950 square feet and features a modern open kitchen, hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, and a private balcony.

↑ For $2,525/month, there’s a West Village studio that boasts high ceilings, a decorative fireplace, a renovated (if small) kitchen, and a full bathroom. The listing claims the place also has skyline views, though the photos don’t exactly back that up.

MTY Group.

↑ After a recent renovation, this three-bedroom abode in Astoria is asking $2,450/month. The space is simple, offering large rooms, hardwood floors, a practical kitchen, and plenty of sunlight. Pets are a no-no and the nearest subway station is located six blocks away.

↑ An even $2,500/month rents a two-bedroom in Williamsburg, equipped with a sizable living room that receives plenty of sunlight, a modest open kitchen, large bedrooms, and a windowed bathroom.


↑ A sunny three-bedroom, located on the third floor of a Ridgewood walk-up, wants $2,495/month. (Fair warning: The owners plan to renovate, so it’s being offered as-is for now—so if you’re looking for a longer lease, this may not be the place.) There is a windowed kitchen, nice-sized bedrooms, plenty of storage space, and a great deal of natural light.

Stellar Management.

↑ And finally, a newly renovated two-bedroom apartment in Harlem is going for $2,500/month. It comes with big windows, new hardwood floors, ample storage space, and a large kitchen with plenty of cabinets and a breakfast bar.
