What $1,400/Month Can Rent Around New York City

New, 24 comments

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New York City neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,400/month.

? Welcome to a very Brooklyn-heavy edition of Curbed Comparisons. In Greenpoint, $1,450/month rents you a 1BR with an odd pet policy that seems to allow some dogs but zero cats. The kitchen might feature a fireplace. Either that or a hole was accidentally made in the wall at some point.

? This ground floor 1BR, located on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, is available for $1,500/month. It reverses the pet policy of the last place, allowing cats but no dogs. It also reverses the "having wood floors" policy.

? On the Upper East Side, $1,400/month gets you a just-over-200-square-foot studio. Sorry.

? For $1,450/month, you can rent a 2BR with carpeted bedrooms and a kitchen island (brokerbabble: "Long Island in the kitchen") in Fort Greene (yes, the Fort Greene.) It sort of looks like a motel from the 70s, but then again, it's a 2BR in Fort Greene for $1,450, so let's not get greedy here.

? In Bed-Stuy, a pretty large 1BR can be yours for $1,500/month. That's more or less all there is to say about this one.

? In Crown Heights, this fourth floor mantle-filled 1.5BR is available for $1,400/month. It's in a very attractive limestone building and features bay windows.
