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: $1,300/month.
↑ In Bed-Stuy, this studio apartment is going for $1,400/month with no fee. It includes some built-in shelves, a bay window, and a recently updated kitchen.
↑ Another no-fee studio, this one on West 139th Street in Harlem, is asking $1,295/month. It looks extremely small, but it has been renovated recently with a new kitchen and recessed lighting.
↑ In Astoria, a ground-floor one-bedroom is going for $1,400/month. The bedroom and living room are very small, but the eat-in kitchen is spacious.
