See what $1,900 rents you in neighborhoods like Bushwick, the Upper West Side, 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 $1,900.


↑If you’re a fan of purple, this one is for you. This lavender-painted apartment in East Flatbush is going for $1,850/month and offers two spacious bedrooms, one bathroom, new hardwood floors, and a renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

Sun-Wood Real Estate.

↑A 700-square-foot apartment in Sunnyside provides 2.5 bedrooms and one bathroom for $1,900/month. The kitchen is a bit dated but otherwise there are some nice details in place like arched entryways and built-in shelving. The apartment is on the fifth floor of a six-floor building, but don’t worry, there’s an elevator.

↑On the Upper West Side, a small but charming studio in a landmarked brownstone is on the market for $1,925/month. A huge decorative fireplace, parquet floors, and original wood window frames and shutters give the place some antique charm. Cute: yes. Spacious: not so much.

Citi Habitats.

↑Another studio in a townhouse, this time in Murray Hill, is going for $1,950/month. The apartment appears pretty simple in its design, and the listing pictures don’t give much away but here’s what we know: there’s a windowed kitchen and three modest closets.

Citi Habitats.

↑In Hudson Heights, a large one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment within an elevator building seeks $1,875/month. Wood floors with decorative inlay, arched entryways, high ceilings, and wall moldings are just a few of the noteworthy details. The apartment’s also a short walk away from Fort Tryon Park.

Douglas Elliman.

↑Lastly, a bright one-bedroom in Bushwick with both classic and contemporary details is renting for $1,950/month. The apartment is on the second floor of a walk-up building and covers 725 square feet with exposed brick walls, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a small room that can be converted into a second bedroom or used as a home office. The apartment also features a washer/dryer and video intercom.
