What $1,500/Month Can Rent You in New York City

New, 37 comments

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: $1,500/month.


↑ In Sunnyside, a 500-square-foot studio is going for $1,575/month. It seems perfectly fine and everything, but enough about the apartment — look at that dog! What a ridiculous dog. Ha ha, that dog.


↑ Way out in Bed-Stuy, a renovated two-bedroom features french door, a new-looking (and windowed) kitchen, and is asking $1,550/month. It also has fairly high ceilings and appears to be pretty spacious.


↑ In East Harlem, on 2nd Avenue and 105th Street, a renovated 500-square-foot one-bedroom is asking $1,450/month. It has a bedroom and a kitchen and that's it.


↑ Another 500-square-footer, this one in Park Slope, is going for an even $1,500/month. The windows appear to be fairly large and it also contains the smallest possible amount of exposed brick.


↑ This ground-floor one-bedroom in Williamsburg has tile floors and not a lot of windows. But on the bright side (literally) there's lots of recessed lighting, as well as access to a backyard patio. It's asking $1,600/month.


↑ And in Crown Heights, a two-bedroom railroad apartment is going for $1,550/month with no broker fee. The kitchen leaves a lot to be desired, despite the fact that, as the brokerbabble boasts, "Refrigerator, Oven and Stove INCLUDED."
