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 in Manhattan renting around $1,900/month.
↑ In Ridgewood, a renovated two-bedroom that comes with a washer-dryer and a dishwasher—that’s the dream!—is going for $1,915/month. It’s close to transit, which is a pro; but it’s the L train, soon to be impacted by that line’s shutdown, which is a con.
↑ Situated right in the middle of Inwood—with the park a block away, and the A at 207th St nearby too—is this one-bedroom apartment asking $1,875/month. It also benefits from a recent renovation, which brought in new kitchen appliances, shiny hardwood floors, and more.
↑ If location matters to you more than size, then this Chelsea studio, renting for an even $1,900/month, may be for you. It’s located in a townhouse on 22nd Street between Eighth and Ninth avenues, and the listing is, alas, otherwise scant on details. The kitchen is small (the washer/dryer pictured is apparently being removed), and it could fit a Murphy bed.
↑ In Bedford-Stuyvesant (or, technically, Stuyvesant Heights), this 520-square-foot one-bedroom unit is going for $1,950/month. It comes with plenty of modern conveniences: laundry in the building, a skylight, a spacious bedroom, bike storage, and more.
↑ This bright Astoria one-bedroom is well-sized for the price—it’s asking $1,900/month. There are some cons (it’s located on the first floor, for instance), but there are also plenty of perks: a spacious bedroom, a windowed kitchen with new appliances, and a location that’s not too far from Socrates Sculpture Park.
↑ Located in the nebulous area known as South Park Slope or Greenwood Heights, this one-bedroom is cute and bright, with nice decorative touches (arched doorways, built-in bookshelves) and a revamped kitchen. It’s renting for $1,950/month.
Which apartment would you choose for around $1,900/month?
