See what’s available for rent in neighborhoods like Chelsea, Flatbush, and the Upper West Side

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.

D J Real Estate LLC.

↑ For $2.050/month, there’s a 750-square-foot one-bedroom in Astoria that features an abundance of natural light, a large open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, wood-framed windows, and a queen-sized bedroom. There’s also a small outdoor sitting area.

Douglas Elliman.

↑ Along the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, a three-bedroom located on the fifth floor of a walk-up building is renting for $1,999/month. The spacious apartment has new hardwood floors, a sunny eat-in kitchen, and a decent amount of natural light. The B/D line’s 167th Street station is about a five-minute walk away.

↑ This modest Chelsea studio, going for $2,050/month, comes fully furnished and even includes maid service two times a month. The kitchen isn’t exactly large—it has just a half fridge and a small stove—and there’s also a windowed bathroom with a shower stall, and a small but workable living space.

Keller Williams NYC.

↑ Rent this Upper West Side one-bedroom within a prewar walkup for an even $2,000/month. Some of its nicer features include high ceilings, a decorative fireplace, and decorative wainscoting; there’s also a large open kitchen with plenty of cabinets.

↑ For an even $2,000/month, there’s this small Upper East Side studio exposed brick walls, large windows, a not-too-terrible amount of room (enough for a couch and a sleeping area, at least), and a practical kitchen. It’s also a short walk to the Second Avenue subway’s 86th Street station.

Bold New York.

↑ Finally, in Flatbush, a light-filled apartment with two-bedrooms, a renovated open kitchen, a new bathroom, recessed lighting, and large windows throughout wants $2,000/month. Per the listing, each room is equipped with air conditioning units and there is a generous amount of storage space on hand.
