What $1,500/Month Can Rent You in New York City

New, 35 comments

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: $1,500/month.


↑ In Brooklyn Heights, a small but pleasant studio apartment is renting for $1,475/month. It's a third-floor walkup, but it also features a separate kitchen. Apparently. The kitchen isn't pictured, which does not bode well.


↑ This studio apartment on the Upper East Side looks just a little cramped and costs $1,525/month. It comes "fully furnished," which is good because we wouldn't want to deal with getting furniture into and out of that room.


↑ In Harlem, this one-bedroom with a separate kitchen actually has some character (and, as such, may already be rented). It's asking $1,550/month.


↑ In Ridgewood, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom is going for $1,600/month. It looks like it was renovated at some point in the recent past, with recessed lighting and newish floors.


↑ Speaking of cramped, you can live by yourself Greenwich Village for $1,494/month if you're willing to unburden yourself of physical possessions. This SRO is located on the fourth floor and what it lacks in stoves, it makes up for in having a window and a door and a small stretch of floor in between those two things.


↑ And in Greenpoint, a depressing one-bedroom with a separate kitchen is asking $1,595/month. It's spacious, as far as places in this price range go, though still described as "cozy."
