Rent in NYC, Seattle, Charlotte: What $2,000/Month Can Get You Right Now

New, 9 comments

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various cities across the U.S. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,000/month.


↑ New York, NY (1.5 beds, 1 bath)—This is a convertible two-bedroom apartment in a renovated lime and brownstone townhouse in the historic Washington Heights neighborhood in upper Manhattan. With three arched windows, a trendy exposed brick wall (of course), hardwood floors, and in-unit washer/dryer, the 730-square-foot abode seems worthy of the trek uptown. (Settled on $2,000/month and NYC? Here are six more options, all in Manhattan, at that!)


↑ Santa Monica, CA (1 beds, 1 bath)—Located just under two miles away from the Santa Monica Pier (with an amusement park, aquarium, beach, and all that good stuff), this 600-square-foot apartment is freshly renovated with new paint, blinds, light fixtures, granite countertops, stove, and ceramic tile floors. The rental also includes a parking spot—it is SoCal after all!


↑ Seattle, WA (1 beds, 1 bath)—This 740-square-foot rental in Belltown, Seattle's waterfront neighborhood features a glass wall and private deck with views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier (it's too close to the Space Needle for a view!) As expected from a loft-style home, there are high ceilings and an open-plan scheme in the main living area.


↑ Charlotte, NC (3 beds, 2.5 baths) —This 1,671-square-foot South Charlotte home is all about spaciousness and hardwood floors. For better or worse, the house is located close to a major shopping center, but in the immediate surroundings, there are walking trails, recreational areas, and a pool.


↑ Denver, CO (1 bed, 1 bath)—Fancy downtown living is on offer at Denver's "Glass House" complex, where a 692-square-foot unit can provide balcony views of Coors Field, the city, and beyond. The airy unit featuring hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, designer lighting, and a giant concrete pillar also comes with access to a shared pool.
