New York rent comparison: What $1,450 gets you

New, 4 comments

See what $1,450/month rents you in Bed-Stuy, Inwood, Forest Hills, 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 $1,450.

↑ In Inwood, this “brand new” one-bedroom on Sherman Avenue is renting for $1,425/month. Details in the listing are extremely scarce, but the floorplan shows one small bedroom and a sleek kitchen packed into a little less than 300 square feet.

↑ A Bed-Stuy studio that’s apparently “priced to occupy fast” is asking $1,450/month. Located on the first floor of a brownstone building, the apartment features some lovely original details (that fireplace!) along with a renovated kitchen.

↑ This Forest Hills studio is laid out in an L shape, meaning that there’s at least some separation between the bedroom area and the rest of the space. For $1,450/month, it also comes with a nice kitchen and bathroom and a decent amount of space.

↑ In Crown Heights, a bright two-room studio is going for $1,475/month. It’s a fairly standard space with some nice details, including inlays in the hardwood floors, and a decorative fireplace. It’s also close to the subway.

↑ This one-bedroom in a Hamilton Heights building is by no means large, as its listing suggests, but it does appear to be pretty sizable given its $1,450/month price tag. A bay window in the living area lends the space a bit of charm, and a spacious closet in the bedroom is an added bonus.

↑ In Kingsbridge Heights, $1,435/month rents a deep studio with a new kitchen and bathroom. (Major perk: there’s a dishwasher!) The building also comes with amenities like laundry on every floor, a fully-equipped gym, on-site parking, and a residents courtyard.
