See what $1,500 rents in six different Brooklyn neighborhoods

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 $1,500/month in various parts of Brooklyn.

↑ Located within a lovely Bed-Stuy townhouse, this $1,500 studio is charming from the inside out. The cozy space has a separate sleep alcove and is detailed with hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, original shutters, and a small kitchen and bathroom that have both been renovated.

↑ This one-bedroom apartment in a Stuyvesant Heights brownstone comes with a rather, uh, unique decor. While the home, asking $1,500 a month, features decorative mantles, a clawfoot tub, and lots of closet space, its quirks include no formal kitchen or stove (just a microwave, toaster, and mini fridge) and rather interesting furnishings that are included.

↑ For $1,450 a month you can live in this spacious studio that exudes prewar charm. The Kensington co-op apartment has large closets, built-in storage, and lots of lovely archways. The kitchen is lengthy but narrow and the bathroom has been fully renovated.

↑ In Bensonhurst, $1,450 can get you a moderately sized one-bedroom with a fair amount of natural light, a sizable kitchen, and spacious bathroom in the fairly quiet neighborhood.

↑ A one-bedroom apartment for $1,500, located just one block from Prospect Park, isn’t something you see everyday. The large Flatbush abode features exposed brick, an updated kitchen with modern appliances, a renovated bathroom, and an abundance of natural light.

↑ This spacious apartment in Crown Heights apartment has been recently renovated and while it doesn’t boast anything fancy, the one-bedroom home has plenty of space, ample storage, and even a decent amount of natural light. It’s asking $1,500 a month.
