See what $1,600 gets you in Park Slope, Astoria, and Washington 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 $1,600/month.

↑ There isn’t much to this tiny Park Slope studio: the boxy apartment has a small living area, two closets, a full bathroom, and something that resembles a kitchen (basically, a sink, stove, and a mini fridge). It’s going for $1,550/month.

↑ In Bushwick, a 1,000-square-foot one-bedroom apartment is going for $1,600/month. The apartment has a queen-sized bedroom with arched windows while a recent renovation brought in new hardwood floors and new kitchen appliances.

↑ For $1,600/month, there’s this modest two-bedroom in Crown Heights. The railroad-style apartment has hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a windowed eat-in kitchen. It’s also close to a bevy of transit stops, including the Broadway Junction hub.

↑ This 512-square-foot studio in Forest Hills comes with standard hardwood floors and high ceilings. The kitchen is dated but does the trick and there are several windows that let in some natural light. The asking price is $1,625/month.

↑ All the way up in Washington Heights, a sleek two-bedroom is going for $1,650/month. The apartment features a simple layout, with a renovated bathroom and a spruced-up kitchen (though we can’t explain why the cabinets are two different colors).

↑ Last but not least, a 650-square-foot one-bedroom in Astoria is renting for $1,600/month. There is a spacious kitchen with a breakfast bar, and hardwood floors throughout. It’s close to the Steinway St and Broadway subway stops.
