What $1,400/Month Can Rent You Around New York City

New, 31 comments

Welcome back 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: $1,400/month.

↑ This studio apartment in Astoria contains a separate eat-in kitchen. (Or, as the listing refers to it, an "eating kitchen.") It's located on the ground floor, so there's also access to a small but grassy back yard. It's asking $1,400/month.

↑ In Park Slope, this moderately terrifying studio apartment is separated into living, sleeping, and kitchen areas. It appears to have tin ceilings and ... linoleum floors? Maybe just tile. Who knows. It wants $1,500/month.

↑ In East Harlem, on 116th, a genuine one-bedroom is going for $1,425/month, heat and hot water included. It also has a separate kitchen, but only in the loosest sense of the word "separate."

↑ Well, this is surprisingly nice. A garden-level studio apartment in Bed-Stuy comes with a large eat-in kitchen and access to a picturesque back yard. What it lacks in windows, it makes up for in original detail. It's asking $1,500/month.

↑ In Long Island City, a renovated one-bedroom with "lots of lights" is going for $1,450/month. It looks like that renovation might not have extended to the kitchen.

↑ And finally, right on the southeastern corner of Prospect Park, this Prospect-Lefferts Gardens one-bedroom was also renovated recently, to minimal effect. Although, to be fair, who knows what it looked like before. It wants $1,500/month.
