New, 6 comments

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 $2,700/month.

Bushwick

A renovated two-bedroom in Bushwick is going for $2,700/month, though that price reflects two months of free rent added to a yearlong lease. The apartment has brand new appliances (including a washer/dryer) but still has some of the old exposed brick. The building is a couple of blocks from the Kosciuszko Street stop on the J train.

Bohemia Realty Group
Hamilton Heights

A two-bedroom in a Hamilton Heights townhouse is renting for $2,700/month. The kitchen has new appliances, including a dishwasher, and there’s also a washer/dryer in-unit. It also comes with access to the building’s roof deck, but it’s also close to St. Nicholas Park and Jackie Robinson Park.

East Village

A renovated East Village one-bedroom with no broker’s fee is renting for $2,725/month. The bedroom is king sized, and there are ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom. The apartment is located on the corner of Second Avenue and 3rd Street in prime East Village.

Warburg Realty
Brooklyn Heights

In Brooklyn Heights, a one-bedroom in a building on Montague Street is renting for $2,700/month. It’s not the newest apartment, but it does have plenty of pre-war charm—a decorative fireplace, inlaid floors, and more. It’s a quick walk from there to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and there are plenty of transit options nearby.

Ridgewood

And finally, a big one-bedroom in Ridgewood is renting for $2,700/month. The apartment is bright, with big bay windows in the bedroom and living room. It also has a large kitchen with plenty of cabinet and counter space. (On the downside, it has a railroad layout.) It’s located a couple of blocks from the Fresh Pond Road stop on the M line.
