See what $1,800/month gets you in Midtown, the Upper East Side, and 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 $1,800/month.

Exit Realty Landmark.

↑ In Fort Hamilton, a large L-shaped studio is renting for $1,800/month. The condo spans nearly 700 square feet and offers an alcove sleeping space, a spacious windowed kitchen, and at least three large closets. [Floorplan]


↑ Another studio, this time in Yorkville, is also going for $1,800/month. Though the square footage isn’t listed, it’s not hard to tell that that apartment is on the small side. Nevertheless, it has some great details that include exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, a full kitchen, and large windows.

Citi Habitats.

↑This no-frills apartment in Washington Heights offers two bedrooms that are large enough to accommodate king-size beds, a windowed kitchen, and decent storage space for $1,850/month. It’s not the most attractive apartment out there but hey, at least it’s spacious.

Bohemia Realty Group.

↑ $1,750/month rents you this light and spacious studio in Harlem in a building that replaced the historic Savoy Ballroom. The apartment has embraced an open layout along with a wall of oversized windows, high ceilings, wood floors, and a Pullman kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

↑ Yet another studio is up for grabs for $1,800/month. This apartment, located in Midtown, isn’t the most generously sized, but the bathroom and kitchen are modern enough. There is also a decorative fireplace on hand that gives the space a little bit of character.

↑ On the Upper East Side, a studio on the second floor of a walkup building is asking $1,850/month. It’s typical small prewar apartment, with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and at least some storage space.
