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: $1,700/month.
↑ In Woodside, Queens, there's this one-bedroom apartment located within the Depression-era Boulevard Gardens complex. (Fair warning: the photos make it look like a studio, albeit a cute one.) The recently renovated kitchen has a new fridge and stove, and there's a bar separating it from the common area.
↑ This Crown Heights one-bedroom is on the second floor of a walk-up, and comes with access to the building's shared back patio. There are new floors, but an old-looking kitchen.
↑ On the Upper East Side, this decent-sized studio has two rooms: a common area and an eat-in kitchen (which also faces an odd, mirrored closet). The bathroom has a full tub. Should the Second Avenue Subway ever open, this place is right around the corner.
↑ This gut-renovated Inwood two-bedroom offers plenty of space, with both a king- and a queen-sized bedroom, along with a nice-sized bathroom. It's also just steps from Inwood Hill Park.
↑ And finally, on the Upper West Side, there's this studio, which only has one listing photo to speak of. But the brokerbabble bills it as the "deal of the year"—and to be fair, it is one block from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History. If you don't mind tiny apartments, this could be the place for you.
