Very few Curbed Boston readers nailed this one—did you?

Address: 201 South Huntington Avenue, #201-807

Rent: $3,000

The results: Some 41 percent of Curbed Boston readers guessed $2,750 for the rent on this 566-square-foot one-bathroom studio near Olmsted Park. A further 26 percent guessed even lower with $2,500.

Only 16 percent guessed the correct—much higher—monthly amount. Perhaps that correct rent is a function of the stubborn Boston rental market, where rents appear to be weathering even something as disruptive as the novel coronavirus pandemic.

A long living room with an arched ceiling and exposed beams, and there’s an L-shaped couch.
The kitchen-dining room area of a studio, with a table and chairs, and there’s one counter in the kitchen.
A bathroom with the vanity next to a glass-enclosed shower next to a stacked washer-dryer.
