New, 3 comments

Five apartments, five NYC neighborhoods

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can rent for close to 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 $2,100/month.

Crown Heights

A one-bedroom in Crown Heights, located on the tiny block of Suydam Street, is renting for $2,100/month. The space is modestly sized but everything is nice and new, with the kitchen in particular festooned with cute touches like exposed shelving. The apartment also comes with access to a shared outdoor space.

Mott Haven

In Mott Haven, a one-bedroom on the ground floor of a small apartment building is renting for $2,100/month. The unit was recently renovated, with new hardwood floors, new bathroom appliances, and more. It also comes with access to a back patio, but you’d have to be okay with that whole ground-floor-apartment thing.

Upper East Side

A small, but nice, Upper East Side studio is renting for $2,100/month. The kitchen and bathroom are both functional, and the living/sleeping area is big enough for a bed, couch, and even a small desk. This may be good if you’re looking for a well-located apartment: It’s one block from the 86th Street stop on the Q, and is surrounded by shops, restaurants, and more perks.


Ever wanted to live close to the beach? That’s a possibility with this two-bedroom unit in the Arverne area of the Rockaways, renting for $2,099/month. The apartment has “condo-style” features, including a renovated kitchen, hardwood floors, and open layouts. It’s located between two stops on the A train.

Jackson Heights

And finally, in Jackson Heights, a 667-square-foot one-bedroom in a condo building is renting for $2,100/month. The apartment is spacious, with plenty of closet space and a renovated kitchen. And as an added bonus, the building has a pool.
