New, 9 comments

Five apartments, five NYC 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 $4,000/month.

Upper West Side

A big two-bedroom on the Upper West Side is asking $4,000/month. The listing is light on details, but notes that the apartment has been “gut renovated” (there are new kitchen appliances), and that it comes with a washer/dryer. But the apartment has location going for it: It’s on West 94th Street, just steps from Riverside Park.

Citi Habitats

In Williamsburg, a one-bedroom loft apartment that could be a perfect live-work space is asking $4,000/month. It’s located within a former factory building, which explains the unit’s high ceilings and industrialish details. The building itself is located on North 3rd Street close to the Williamsburg waterfront.

Greenwich Village

A two-bedroom in the heart of Greenwich Village is renting for $4,000/month. According to the listing, the apartment has plenty of desirable qualities: plenty of closet space, pre-war details like original crown molding, big bedrooms, and big windows. It’s located on Sullivan Street between Bleecker and West 3rd Streets.

Windsor Terrace

Head to Windsor Terrace and you’ll find a two-bedroom apartment renting for $4,000/month. The unit comes with a wood-burning fireplace, stainless steel appliances (plus a dishwasher), two decently sized bedrooms, and more. The master bedroom has its own balcony with views of nearby Prospect Park.


And finally, a Gramercy one-bedroom is renting for $4,000/month. This place has been “renovated from top to bottom,” according to the listing, and it shows: There’s a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of storage; the bedroom, meanwhile, has two closets, and there’s another walk-in at the entryway. The building is on East 16th Street, just a short walk from Union Square.
