See what $1,300/month gets you in neighborhoods like West Harlem, Forest Hills, and Hamilton 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 renting around $1,300.

↑ A charming studio with pre-war style offers little space but lots of character. The apartment, asking $1,350 in Hamilton Heights, has a decorative brick fireplace, pressed tin ceilings, and two large windows. While the kitchen is tiny, the bathroom appears to be a bit more spacious.

↑ In Forest Hills a large studio is going for $1,350 per month. The practical space is located within a co-op building and has three large closets, a small kitchen with a dishwasher, and a decent amount of natural light.

↑ A one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment on Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood is renting for $1,250 per month. Photos are few but the space looks like it receives a lot of sunlight, and the kitchen doesn’t appear to be unreasonably small.

↑ A West Harlem studio on 140th Street, asking $1,350 per month, has been renovated and actually looks pretty spacious. Among its features are new hardwood floors, a small kitchen, and large windows that allow for a fair amount of sunlight.

↑ In the Mount Hope section of the Bronx, a sunny one-bedroom apartment features a cool sunken living room, dining area, and an okay-sized kitchen. Monthly rent price is $1,275.

↑ There aren’t many photos nor are the listing details very telling for this Northeast Flatbush one-bedroom apartment. From what we can see, the space has a good amount of sunlight and judging by the cans of paint in the middle of the floor, it’s undergone some work lately. Asking price is $1,350 per month, and gas is included.
