See what $2,300/month gets you in neighborhoods like Hell’s Kitchen, Harlem, and Brooklyn Heights

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 $2,300/month.

First up is this alcove studio in Hell’s Kitchen that wants $2,295/month. The small abode comes with a modern kitchen that features stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, two decent-sized closets, beamed ceilings, and glass block windows that allow for some natural light.

For $2,295/month, there’s this renovated studio in Brooklyn Heights that has exposed brick, a corner kitchenette with stainless steel appliances, large windows—and a sleeping loft. While it’s small, it’s in a prime Brooklyn Heights spot, and a number of transit hubs (Borough Hall, Jay Street-MetroTech) are a short walk away.

A one-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom duplex in Crown Heights is going for $2,350/month. The first-floor apartment has hardwood floors, a sleek kitchen, a basement area on the lower level, and a sizable living room on the top floor. The building offers a laundry room and a roof deck, and the apartment itself coms with shared access to a large backyard.

In Williamsburg, an even $2,300/month rents this two-bedroom with a windowed eat-in kitchen, a modest-sized living room, bedrooms that can accommodate king and queen-sized beds, and a fair amount of natural light. The nearest train station is the L line’s Montrose Avenue station; with the impending 15-month shutdown, that’s something to consider.

And finally, a one-bedroom in Harlem is renting for $2,300/month. It has an open layout, exposed brick walls, wood floors, three closets, a modern kitchen, and an in-unit washer/dryer. The 2 and 3 line’s 125th Street station is a five-minute walk away.
