New York City Rent Comparison: What $1,750 Gets You Right Now

New, 1 comment

See what $1,750 rents in you in NYC neighborhoods like Yorkville, Astoria, and Harlem

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 we're looking at units around NYC renting for around $1,750/month.

↑ Perhaps only truly "massive" in NYC broker parlance, this Hamilton Heights one-bedroom covers about 600 square feet (as per the listing) and comes with a gutted kitchen and bathroom. The apartment on Saint Nicholas Avenue also has a decent amount of closet space and is close to the A, B, C, and D trains. It's asking $1,750/month.

↑ A renovated studio in a Bed-Stuy townhouse is asking $1,750/month. The apartment may be small, but it's located on a leafy block of Hancock Street between Marcy and Nostrand avenues, and comes with a renovated kitchenette and bathroom, as well as some recessed lighting.

↑ A stone's throw from Inwood Hill Park at the northern tip of Manhattan, a spacious one-bedroom on Seaman Avenue is renting for $1,750/month. The apartment comes with some reminders of the building's Art Deco days, like its rounded arches, but it has also been updated for modern-day with a new kitchen and bathroom.

↑ On Lenox Avenue in Harlem, $1,750 rents a ground-floor one-bedroom with an alcove kitchen. The apartment's bedroom is queen-sized with one decently-sized closet, and the apartment has a coat closet near the door. The bathroom looks new, but standard.

↑ In Astoria, $1,750 rents a one-bedroom near the southern edge of Astoria Park. The apartment, while spacious, is a bit of a hike from the Astoria Blvd N and Q stop, but its park-adjacent location, huge bedroom, and light may make up for that.

↑ Square footage comes at a premium in Manhattan, and this teeny tiny Yorkville studio proves that. The apartment on 93rd Street near Second Avenue is asking $1,725/month and at best can fit a bed, miniature sofa, and maybe even a few tchotchkes.
