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 $3,500/month.

A two-bedroom on the Lower East Side, that’s been gut renovated, is going for an even $3,500/month. Both rooms are big enough to accommodate queen-sized beds and flourishes include beamed ceilings, wood floors, a huge skylight, and a contemporary windowed kitchen.

In Bushwick, $3,500 can get you this revamped duplex, offering three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. The eat-in kitchen is equipped with sleek cabinets and stainless steel appliances; there’s an in-unit washer/dryer, lots of sunlight, and access to a shared backyard.
