Five apartments, five New York City neighborhoods

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 $2,200/month.

There aren’t too many photos available for this Upper East Side studio, located on First Avenue between 73rd and 74th streets, but from what we can tell, it’s relatively bright and not absurdly small, as far as studios go. (The kitchen is also pretty small.) On the plus side, it’s close to the Second Avenue subway’s 72nd Street stop. It’s going for $2,195/month.

A two-bedroom in Crown Heights with new kitchen appliances is asking $2,200/month. The apartment’s bedrooms have also been given a bit of an upgrade, including new light fixtures, but there’s some charming exposed brick. The apartment itself is close to the Crown Heights/Bed-Stuy border; the C at Kingston-Throop is the closest subway stop.

Looking for something with more space? A three-bedroom in Washington Heights, located on 170th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, is renting for $2,200/month. It comes with an open kitchen and what the listing says are king-sized bedrooms. On the plus side, its location puts it close to a few parks; on the down side, no pets are allowed.

Another three-bedroom, this one in North New York in the Bronx, is going for an even $2,200/month. Two of the bedrooms are queen-sized, while another is smaller; there’s new everything, including kitchen appliances and a sweet bathroom. Location-wise, it’s near St. Mary’s Park and the 6 train at Brook Avenue.

And finally, in Park Slope, a small one-bedroom in a townhouse near Grand Army Plaza is going for $2,200/month. The living room’s focal point is the vintage fireplace with its lovely wooden mantle. But it’s not a huge apartment; the kitchen is what the listing calls “efficient,” and the bedroom is only able to fit a full-sized bed.
