See what $1,500 rents in six different Manhattan 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 Manhattan.

↑ This Hudson Heights studio offers space, sunlight, and a fairly large kitchen with a dining counter. Renting for $1,500 a month, the home has been recently renovated and features finishes that include crown molding, hardwood floors, and a marble-floored bathroom. It also has plenty of sunlight.

↑ An adorable studio apartment in Inwood has an unusually large kitchen. Though the common area is limited, who can be mad when the apartment has such a lovely outdoor terrace? Renting for $1,525 a month, the studio also has a decent-sized closet, a fair amount of natural light, and a full bathroom.

↑ For the minimalist, this small one-bedroom, one-bathroom Hamilton Heights home might be just right. The space, asking $1,550 a month, offers a modest living room, a bedroom that, as per its listing, can accommodate a queen-sized bed, exposed brick, and some storage space. For those even remotely looking to channel their inner gourmet, the kitchen likely won’t suit their needs.

↑ A one-bedroom apartment in Hell’s Kitchen is going for $1,570 a month, just a bit over this week's budget. For what it’s asking, the space is pretty nice. The apartment is being listed as a one-year sublet and comes equipped with a decorative fireplace, a full kitchen with dishwasher, and windows that allow for natural light.

↑ This spacious Washington Heights studio, located along Broadway and 161st Street, features a moderately-sized living space, a small kitchenette with new stainless steel appliances, two large storage closets, and high ceilings. It’s asking just $1,475 a month.

↑ A 575-square-foot one-bedroom apartment located in the Fort George section of Manhattan is renting for $1,499 a month. The space includes an oversized window, a full kitchen that even offers a bit of counter space and a cut-out window, a full bathroom, and a sizable bedroom.
