See what $1,500/month gets you in neighborhoods like the Briarwood, Bed-Stuy, and Washington Heights

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly 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, we're looking at apartments renting around $1,500.

↑In Bay Ridge, a renovated one-bedroom is going for $1,450 a month. The prewar apartment maintains an exposed brick wall and slightly dated bathroom.

↑A 600-square-foot junior one-bedroom apartment in Kensington is renting for $1,500/month. Filled with lots of natural light, the unit also comes with an open living/dining room, modern kitchen, renovated bathroom, and four closets.

↑Brokerbabble calls this tiny 425-square-foot apartment in Hamilton Heights a one-bedroom but from the scarce pictures that are available, it looks more like a studio.

↑This one-bedroom in Briarwood measures 621 square feet and features glossy hardwood floors, a modest kitchen, and a balcony.

Another tiny apartment, this time in Bed-Stuy, is renting for $1,500 a month. It appears to receive lots of sunlight, and offers one small bedroom, overhead storage, and a few small closets.
