See what $1,450 rents you in neighborhoods like Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Astoria, and East Harlem

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 $1,450/month.

↑In a prewar walk-up building in Astoria, a sunny studio on the second floor is renting for $1,500/month. The listing description doesn’t reveal the exact square footage but judging from the photos, it’s a small space. There are two closets, inlaid hardwood floors, and a tiny but workable kitchen.

↑A newly renovated apartment in Flatbush is asking $1,495/month. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment has been finished with shiny hardwood floors, a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a modern bathroom, and lovely architectural details that include arched entryways and built-in shelves.

↑$1,495/month can also rent you a sizable studio about a block away from Prospect Park as well as the B and Q lines in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. This unit is on the sixth floor of an elevator building and it has been revamped with a new kitchen and an updated bathroom. Two large windows mean the small apartment gets a good amount of natural light.

↑In Richmond Hill, a spacious one-bedroom is going for an even $1,500/month. It doesn’t offer any bells and whistles, but you can jazz it up on your own. It does provide the one thing that matters most in an apartment: decent space.

↑A 600-square-foot pad in The Bronx comes with one bedroom and one-and-a-half baths for $1,450/month. After a full renovation, the apartment boasts a sleek living room with plenty of windows, a modern windowed kitchen with white cabinetry, and four large closets throughout.

↑This no-frills studio in East Harlem wants $1,450/month. The apartment offers a decent-sized kitchen with a small breakfast bar, a modest sized living room, and a full bathroom. It doesn’t provide much by way of natural light but it is located just a block and a half away from the 110th Street subway station on the 6 line so that’s something.
