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: $1,200/month.
↑ This apartment, a one-bedroom on the top floor of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens building, looks nice enough to makes us somewhat suspicious. Nevertheless, it claims to have been the beneficiary of renovation that redid the kitchen and bathroom, and is asking $1,300/month.
↑ This studio apartment with a separate kitchen on the third floor of an East Harlem building is described as "a clean place." Hey, could be worse. The kitchen floor has a pretty cool checkerboard pattern and it's asking $1,299/month, heat and hot water included.
↑ Down in Bay Ridge, this studio apartment is described as being in a "quiet and safe building" (there's a very low bar for buildings at this price point). It has new kitchen cabinets and wants $1,200/month.
↑ This 500-square-foot one-bedroom in Flushing is in a co-op, so you need board approval to rent there. We imagine that getting rejected from this building would be a big blow to one's confidence, so it's a bit of a risky one. $1,250/month.
↑ In Washington Heights, this renovated studio is located in a prewar elevator building with a live-in super, porter staff, and laundry. It's going for $1,190/month.
↑ And, at the easternmost edge of Crown Heights, a high-ceilinged one-bedroom is asking a mere $1,150/month, heat and hot water included. Highlights include the bay window and fresh-looking paint.
