New, 7 comments

See what $1,800 rents in NYC neighborhoods like the Upper East Side, Washington Heights, and Borough Park

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 renting for around $1,800/month.

↑ In a private house in East Flatbush, $1,850 can land you a sunny two-bedroom apartment with one bathroom, a large living room, and pretty decent sized kitchen. The home also has large windows, hardwood floors, and lovely molding, and ample storage space.

↑ If you’re unbothered by the hike up to the fourth floor, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment within a Borough Park prewar walkup might just be the one. The newly renovated pad is incredibly sunny and boasts a lengthy kitchen, sizable bedrooms, and beautiful new hardwood floors. It’s asking $1,800 a month.

↑ Loads of natural light floods this spacious apartment in Briarwood, Queens. The unit has one bedroom, one bathroom, a large living room, storage-space loaded kitchen, and a private balcony all for a monthly ask of $1,850.

↑ This Washington Heights studio could use a bit of sprucing up in certain areas but overall the studio apartment is quite nice. It features a sunken room, full bathroom, arched doorways, and a renovated kitchen for $1,850 a month.

↑ Let’s face it: $1,795 won’t get you a whole lot of bang for your buck on the Upper East Side, but it can get you this fairly spacious studio. Perfect for those who have pastimes of which intense cooking aren’t one.

↑ In Morris Park in the Bronx, $1,750 can get you a nicely renovated one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment that offers hardwood floors, a sleek kitchen with a dishwasher, and a large living room.
