See what you can get in neighborhoods like Midtown East, Ridgewood, and Williamsburg

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 $3,000/month.

↑ While this Midtown East studio is only about 400 square feet, it has a few nice finishing touches like large windows, hardwood floors, and beamed ceilings. There’s the option to have the apartment delivered furnished or unfurnished for the same price, which is $3,000/month.

↑ In Williamsburg, you can rent this one and a half bedroom apartment for an even $3,000/month. (Alas, the cute dog in the photos is not included.) The space includes a sizable open kitchen, high ceilings, plenty of natural light, and a small terrace outside of the living room.

Warburg Realty.

↑ Rent this one-bedroom in Kips Bay, situated on the fourth floor of a townhouse on East 29th Street, for $3,075/month. The apartment spans the entire floor and comes with exposed brick walls, a decorative fireplace, a windowed kitchen, and two skylights. The 6 line’s 28th Street station is a five-minute walk away.

Douglas Elliman.

↑ Head to Sunset Park, where an 880-square-foot apartment with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms is going for $2,975/month. The layout is fairly simple; the place comes with a windowed galley kitchen with modern appliances, a decent-sized living room, and modest-sized bedrooms. There is the option to rent the unit furnished or unfurnished.

Purple Stone Realty LLC.

↑ After receiving a gut renovation, this three-bedroom in Ridgewood is asking $3,000. The spacious apartment offers hardwood floors throughout, brand new kitchen cabinets and appliances, plenty of windows, and access to a private backyard.

↑ If you’re looking for maximum space, there’s this four-bedroom in Hamilton Heights that’s renting for $2,975/month. Per the listing, there are two king-sized bedrooms and two full-sized rooms, along with a windowed kitchen with a dishwasher, and a small windowed bathroom. The 1 line’s 145th Street station is a five-minute walk away.
