Curbed Comparisons: What $3,800/Month Can Rent You in New York City

Curbed New York

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a 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's price: $3,800/month.

↑ In the part of Soho that used to be called Little Italy, this two-bedroom was recently renovated. It's not the most thrilling now, but it is very new and shiny and derives most of its character for a section of exposed brick with a portion carved out in the rough shape of a decorative fireplace. It's asking $3,775/month.

↑ This two-bedroom, two-bathroom in Cobble Hill was listed on Monday for $3,500. Then they thought better of that and upped the price to $3,800/month. It also has a little exposed brick and a decorative fireplace.

↑ The listing for this Upper East Side apartment says it's a three-bedroom. None of the bedrooms are pictured, though, so we'll just, uh ... take their word for it. It's asking $3,900/month. There's apparently a fireplace, too, also not pictured. Hm.

↑ In Williamsburg, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom is probably not quite the gloomy cave that it appears to be in the listing photos. (It also hopefully does have all those bedrooms and bathrooms — none of them are pictured here, either.) That backyard looks very nice though. It's going for $3,750/month with no fee.

↑ In Greenwich Village, this tiny fourth-floor walkup has one bedroom and comes furnished with the world's smallest flatscreen TV. It's asking $3,700/month.

↑ And in Boerum Hill, this listing gets huge points for actually including photos of both its bedrooms. It was built in 2007 and is asking $3,800/month.
