Five NYC neighborhoods, five apartments to rent

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 $3,300.

West Village

This West Village one-bedroom isn’t large—the bedroom itself may only have a skylight, not a proper window—but it has a new kitchen and bathroom, and is located within a tiny, charming townhouse on West 4th Street. If you’re the sort for whom location matters more than size, this may be the apartment for you. It’s going for $3,300/month.


But if you value space, consider this four-bedroom apartment in Bed-Stuy—also renting for an even $3,300—may be more up your alley. The apartment is “extremely huge,” according to the listing, and in addition to those four bedrooms there’s a kitchen with modern appliances and a living room with exposed brick walls. It’s close to the Myrtle-Willoughby stop on the G line.

Kips Bay

A one-bedroom apartment in a doorman building in Kips Bay is renting for $3,300/month, and for that price, you get access to the building’s amenities—a roof deck, a gym and yoga room, a putting green, and more. The unit itself has a washer/dryer and dishwasher, and gets plenty of light.

Long Island City

Just across the river in Long Island City is a one-bedroom apartment, measuring nearly 700 square feet, that’s renting for $3,300/month. The perks here include all the ones you’d expect from a modern LIC building—washer/dryer, big windows with stellar views, new appliances—as well as a huge terrace.


And finally, a one-bedroom on the western edge of Chelsea—it’s located on 23rd Street between 10th and 11th avenues—is going for $3,290/month. It’s not quite a 1BR; although the bedroom has a big window, it also opens up onto the living room via pocket doors. The building itself has plenty of amenities—a gym, concierge, etc.—and it’s close to the High Line.
