What $1,300/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 20 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: $1,300/month.

? A vocal faction of Curbed Comparisons commenters have been clamoring for more outer borough listings, and, with this week's price point at $1,300/month, there's no choice but to comply. In Sunnyside, Queens, a well-maintained, 700-square-foot 1BR is available for $1,325/month. It includes inlayed floors, french doors, a windowed kitchen, and a small patio.

? In East Harlem, a large, 650-square-foot studio is going for $1,250/month. It includes quite a bit of exposed brick, and also claims to have all new appliances.

? Way up in Washington Heights, a spacious, new-looking 1BR is going for $1,400/month. It has two closets and nice, big windows in every room, including the kitchen.

? A newly-renovated, 600-square-foot 1BR in Bushwick wants $1,325/month. It's a fourth floor walkup and also located a block from the L and M trains, which is nice. Hopefully that photo of the bathroom is pre-renovation.

? In Astoria, a renovated 1BR is asking $1,365/month. It has one of those kitchen window things, so you can invite your friends over and pretend to be a bartender.

? Finally, on the Upper East Side, a 1BR in a brownstone is available for $1,400/month. That includes heat and hot water, though.
