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 $4,100/month.
A three-bedroom just a couple of blocks north of Central Park is renting for $4,100/month. The apartment, located within a condo building, has plenty of nice perks, including a washer/dryer, gas fireplace, and new kitchen appliances. The building itself also boasts amenities like bike storage and outdoor space.

In Long Island City, a new two-bedroom is going for $4,050/month—and this particular rental has no broker’s fee. The unit is spacious, with queen-sized bedrooms and huge windows that let in plenty of light. The building itself is just a few blocks Queensboro Plaza—so it might be noisy, but transit access is superb.
A one-bedroom in Murray Hill with an oversized living room is renting for $4,080/month. About that room: It’s big enough to fit a couch and small dining room table, and have a bit left over to spare for a foyer area. The kitchen has new appliances, and the bedroom gets plenty of sunlight.
A two-bedroom in a townhouse just below Houston Street is renting for an even $4,100/month. Though it’s not as mod as some of the other units featured here, it’s got plenty of character. One thing it’s not lacking is storage space—there are walls of closets that lead to one of the bedrooms, and the kitchen has plenty of cabinets.
And finally, a two-bedroom in a new Downtown Brooklyn building is going for $4,125/month. It has all of the mod cons you’d expect from a new rental—big windows, nice appliances, a good amount of space—and it’s located right across from the City Point megaproject, so it’s incredibly convenient for transit and other perks.
