What $1,700/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 8 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: $1,700/month.

↑ In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, a just-renovated, below-ground apartment with ugly tile flooring is asking $1,700/month. On the bright side, it has two (not at all large) bedrooms and there's no broker fee.

↑ On the Upper East Side, in an elevator building on 76th Street and 2nd Avenue, a cute little one-bedroom is going for $1,750/month. There appears to be only one window, in the bedroom, but other than that it seems pretty nice.

↑ The brokerbabble for this alcove studio in Boerum Hill assures us that "you are not being pranked!" which is perhaps not quite as comforting as they intended it to be. Still, the place looks pretty spacious for $1,750/month, although it is a fourth-floor walkup.

↑ Hopefully, this railroad two-bedroom in Bushwick looks better now than it did when the mid-renovation listing photos were taken. It's asking $1,650/month, with no broker fee.

↑ In Long Island City, a 650-square-foot renovated one-bedroom on the fifth floor of a walkup building is asking $1,745/month.
