See what $1,750/month gets you in neighborhoods like Williamsburg, Astoria, Kips Bay, and more

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 $1,750.

↑A one-bedroom in Astoria, measuring 725 square feet, is renting for $1,750/month. It offers a spacious kitchen that’s been redesigned, an oversized living room, and lots of windows that provide a decent amount of sunlight.

↑Brokerbabble refers to this Bed-Stuy unit as a “cozy one-bedroom” but we think it’s safe to call it a junior one-bedroom at best. Nevertheless, this 500-square-foot abode, seeking $1,787/month, is accented with period details that include a decorative fireplace and exposed brick, along with huge windows and a tiny but modern kitchen.

↑$1,700/month rents you this sunny one-bedroom in Inwood. The apartment has been renovated and features a new eat-in kitchen along with three storage closets.

↑There isn’t much description for this Kips Bay studio, by way of listing photos or even a description, but from what we do have to work with, it looks like location might be the best selling point for this compact space. In any event, it’s renting for $1,800/month.

↑In Williamsburg, $1,750/month rents you this quirky one-bedroom along Montrose Avenue. The apartment looks rather tiny and dated but maybe a little sprucing up could do the trick.

↑A newly renovated two-bedroom in East Flatbush is going for $1,800/month. The sunny space has a large living rooms and sizable bedrooms.
