See what $1,800/month rents you in neighborhoods like Astoria, Crown Heights, 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.

↑ Part of the massive Savoy Park complex in Central Harlem, this studio apartment comes fitted with a dishwasher and a microwave. The apartment also gets a good amount of light, and residents in the building have access to a laundry, onsite parking, and multiple playgrounds. For all of that, this place is asking $1,800/month.

↑ In Astoria, this two-bedroom is located on the second floor of a three-story building. The apartment boasts hardwood floors, “ample closet space,” and the two bedrooms are apparently the same size. The apartment is a five minute walk from the Astoria Boulevard N, W station. For all of that, this two-bedroom is asking $1,800/month.

↑ This one-bedroom apartment in Crown Heights comes with hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and a bedroom that can fit a queen size bed. The apartment is part of a pet-friendly building, and comes with a decent amount of closet space as well. For all of that, it’s $1,800/month.

↑ Located at the corner of East 96th Street and Lexington Avenue, this Upper East Side studio is tiny, but still manages to fit a full size bed, a couch, and a small coffee table. The windowed kitchen is a bonus, and comes with a tiny breakfast bar for additional seating. For all of that, this place is asking $1,795/month.

↑ This Sunset Park one-bedroom recently underwent a gut renovation and has now been fitted with hardwood floors, and a new dishwasher, countertops and cabinetry in the kitchen. The bedroom comes with two windows, and is relatively spacious as well. All of that is asking $1,775/month.

↑ Located on 49th Street near Roosevelt Avenue, this one-bedroom apartment in Sunnyside is a short walk from the subway, and is on the ground floor of a four-story building. The building features a live-in super and is asking $1,775/month.
