What $5,000 rents in NYC

New, 9 comments

See what $5,000/month rents in five NYC neighborhoods, including Dumbo and Soho

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 $5,000/month.

Warburg Realty
Upper East Side

On the Upper East Side, a one-bedroom in a condo building is renting for $5,000/month. The apartment was recently renovated, and has a brand new kitchen with a large marble island, plenty of storage space, one full bathroom, and a powder room. It’s located in prime Upper East Side, on East 70th Street between Lexington and Third avenues.

Halstead Property Development Marketing

A Dumbo one-bedroom with Manhattan views is renting for $5,008/month (a figure that is so oddly precise because it reflects pricing with one month of rent offered for free as an incentive). The place gets plenty of light thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows, and has all new everything. It’s around the corner from the F train at York Street.

West Village

This West Village one-bedroom has plenty of modern conveniences—brand new kitchen appliances, a “cutting-edge bath” (not pictured, alas)—along with vintage touches like a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround. It’s also located in the heart of the West Village, on Charles Street between Greenwich Avenue and Waverly Place. The downside? No pets.

Citi Habitats
Crown Heights

A positively huge (2,000 square foot!) four-bedroom duplex in Crown Heights is renting for $4,995/month. In addition to the bedrooms, the place has two bathrooms, three fireplaces, hardwood floors, a laundry room, and period details. It’s situated within a townhouse on Park Place between New York and Brooklyn avenues, right between the C or the 2 and 5 at Nostrand Avenue.


And finally, on the Soho/Hudson Square border, a large, “loft-like” apartment (translation: it’s a studio with a “sleeping area”) is renting for $5,000/month. It’s bright an airy thanks to several large windows, and the sleeping area is actually rather large, if not closed off from the rest of the apartment. It’s located in a former school building on King Street, less than a block from the 1 at Houston Street.
