New York rent comparison: What $1,750/month gets you right now

New, 7 comments

See what around $1,750 rents you in neighborhoods like Midtown East, Astoria, and the Upper East Side

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/month.

Keller Williams NYC.

↑ Rent a spacious one-bedroom in Inwood with wood floors, arched entryways, built-ins, and natural light for just $1,800/month. The windowed kitchen is narrow but equipped with plenty of cabinet space. The apartment also has high ceilings and a modern bathroom.

↑ An unremarkable but efficient apartment in Astoria is going for $1,700/month. The apartment is simple, with just one bedroom, one bathroom, wood floors, several windows, and a practical kitchen.

↑ Another sunny one-bedroom, this time in Flushing, is going for an even $1,750/month. The listing description is short on details, but from what we can tell, this no-frills apartment gets decent natural light and has all the basic features. The nearest train station is about six blocks away but the nearest bus stop is much closer.


↑ In Crown Heights, a newly renovated two-bedroom on Atlantic Avenue is going for $1,800/month. The space has a tiny kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and subway tile backsplash; small but workable bedrooms, and large windows that let in light.


↑ If you don’t mind living in a pretty small studio, then this tiny space on the Upper East Side could be a winner, for $1,795/month. Despite being so small, there are a few nice details like the exposed brick wall and the surprisingly nice (if dated) kitchen.

Salizzoni Realty.

↑ Lastly, there’s another studio (this one in Midtown), that’s asking $1,800/month. That price gets you a sad kitchen with a few cabinets and a mini fridge; a full bathroom; and a great location if you’re extremely dedicated to living in Manhattan.
