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 $6,000/month.

Two Trees
Dumbo

A two-bedroom apartment in a relatively new Dumbo building is going for $5,995/month. Floor-to-ceiling windows, new appliances (including a washer/dryer), and two big bedrooms are part of the package, as is access to the building’s amenities, which includes a rooftop deck designed by James Corner Field Operations. It’s also close to Brooklyn Bridge Park and Dumbo’s shops, cultural hubs, and restaurants.

East Village

In the East Village—technically Alphabet City—a spacious two-bedroom rental in a condo building is going for $5,990/month. The apartment has an open kitchen with a good amount of cabinet space, a big master bedroom, and a smaller second bedroom. There’s also a small south-facing balcony that gets plenty of sun. The place is located on East 13th Street between Avenues A and B.

Upper East Side

On the Upper East Side, a two-bedroom in a condo building is renting for $5,995/month. The apartment has high ceilings, a full bathroom and a powder room, and one big bedroom; the other two rooms are small, and may be better suited as offices. The building is located on East 80th Street close to East End Avenue.

Prospect Heights

For $6,000/month, there’s a three-bedroom duplex on the top floor of a Prospect Heights townhouse. There’s plenty of space here: The kitchen/living room area on the lower floor is a full 50 feet long, and in addition to the three bedrooms, there’s a family room that leads out onto a roof terrace. The building itself is just a short walk from Prospect Park.

West Village

And finally, in the West Village, a renovated one-bedroom is going for $6,000/month. Everything here—from the kitchen cabinets and countertops to the custom closets—is new, and there’s plenty of closet space throughout. It’s in a prime location on Bank Street, and a short walk to the subway at 14th Street and Eighth Avenue.
