See what $1,950 rents in Crown Heights, on the Lower East Side, and beyond

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's price: $1,950 per month.

↑ In Bed-Stuy, a newly-renovated 1.5 (or two-bedroom, if you get creative) is on the market for $1,900. The apartment is in a brownstone on Hart Street, centered between the Myrtle-Willoughby and Bedford-Nostrand G stops.

↑ A two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in Crown Heights has also been recently renovated. For $1,936, residents also get access to the small building's common outdoor space, bike storage, laundry room, storage lockers, and gym. The huge perk here, other than the nice renovations, is the apartment's central air.

↑ Privacy lovers, this basement apartment in East Williamsburg is for you. The apartment is punctuated by two small and high windows, one in the living area and one in the lofted bedroom. The listing also mentions private outdoor space, which goes unpictured. It's asking $2,000.

↑ Located on the Upper West Side, this one-bedroom apartment is just a few blocks away from Central Park, so its got that in its favor. Though it's listed as a one-bedroom it's hard to make out where the living room ends and the bedroom begins from the pictures above. But that apart, the apartment does get a good amount of light, and boasts of plenty of cabinet space and a bathroom set in marble.

↑This one-bedroom on the Lower East Side is a pretty sweet deal considering it's asking only $1,950 per month, and is located just a stone's throw away from some of the best bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. It sits right across from the Williamsburg Bridge in case you fancy a run or just some great views of the city. The apartment itself comes with hardwood floors, a decent sized bedroom, and the kitchen and living room area are not too shabby either.
