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: $1,200/month.
↑ What basically amounts to a dorm room in a building off Astor Place in the East Village is asking $1,195/month, utilities included. You'll be sharing a bathroom with your hallmates, and it looks like there might be room for a bed, and not much else. You do get a fridge, microwave, and sink, though.
↑ In the Stuyvesant Heights neighborhood of Bed-Stuy, this studio in a brownstone building is asking $1,150/month. It has high ceilings and some windows.
↑ A studio in a walkup building on 139th Street in Harlem is available for $1,295/month, probably, although the listing includes pictures of two completely separate apartments. It does not allow pets.
↑ In Crown Heights, a 550-square-foot studio is going for $1,300/month with utilities included. It has new floors, exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, and also does not allow pets.
↑ And in Flatbush, a renovated 490-square-foot studio in a prewar elevator building is asking $1,250/month, heat and hot water included. It does allow (small) pets.
