New, 10 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 $9,000/month.

Douglas Elliman/Josh Rubin

A 1,300-square-foot condo in Chelsea that has its own private garden and hot tub is renting for an even $9,000/month. The apartment is a duplex with two bedrooms and two bathrooms; there’s a “master suite” on the lower level that opens onto the spacious patio (and that hot tub apparently fits five). It’s located on West 18th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues.

On the western edge of Tribeca, a sleek condo is renting for $8,995/month. It has two bedrooms and a small sleeping alcove, according to the floorplan, and the living room is gigantic—just about 42 feet long. The loft-y space also has two bathrooms and a walk-in closet. It’s located in a pre-war building on Watts Street, just a couple of blocks from the Hudson River.

Upper West Side

A three-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side is renting for $9,000/month. There’s tons of space here, with big bedrooms (and lots of closets), a separate kitchen, and a living room and dining room area. Location-wise, it’s on West End Avenue between 100 and 101st streets, close to Riverside Park.

Park Slope

In Park Slope, an entire three-bedroom townhouse is going for $9,000/month. The home is located in a lovely brownstone on 2nd Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, and it has plenty of vintage details, including decorative fireplaces and moldings. There’s also a spacious back garden.

West Village

And finally, in a celeb-beloved building (Robert de Niro and Francis Ford Coppola have both purchased real estate there in the past), a one-bedroom apartment is renting for $9,000/month. The floorplan is largely open—there’s not exactly a door between the bedroom and living room—but it’s spacious and in a great location (on Morton and Bedford streets).
