New York City Rent Comparison: What $1,900 Gets You in The Bronx

New, 11 comments

See what $1,900 can rent you in Bronx neighborhoods like Port Morris, Spuyten Duyvil, and Kingsbridge 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 in the Bronx renting around $1,900.

↑ In Bedford Park, this two-bedroom is asking a very specific $1,946 per month. The apartment apparently has a "spacious old New York layout" (whatever that means), and the building has "a cool live-In super," so there's that.

↑ This two-bedroom in a slightly industrial part of Port Morris (right next to the former Zaro's bakery) is asking an even $1,900 per month. There's not much information about it in the listing, but it looks decent enough, with new kitchen appliances.

↑ On the other end of Bruckner Boulevard in Castle Hill, there's a two-bedroom apartment "with many updated amenities!" That's it. (Well, it also has stainless steel appliances and seemingly newish cabinets in the kitchen.) It's asking $1,980 per month.

↑ In a luxury building in Spuyten Duyvil, a studio apartment with fancy features—quartz countertops, in-unit washer-dryer, and the like—is asking $1,900. It's not the closest place to a subway, but it is close to buses.

↑ And finally, in Kingsbridge Heights just a few blocks from the Jerome Reservoir, there's this fifth-floor two bedroom with, per the listing, "INCREDIBLE VIEWS." The space is big and bright, though it's hard to tell if the fridge is missing or not. The price: $1,975.
