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 $3,900/month.
A spacious one-bedroom in Prospect Park South can be yours for $1,499/month. The apartment is newly renovated and has hardwood floors, a windowed kitchen, and a decent amount of sunlight. The B and Q line’s Church Avenue station is about a block and a half away.
In Flushing, a studio spanning just 350 square feet wants $1,500/month. The compact pad includes a kitchen with full-sized appliances, a windowed bathroom with black-and-white floor tiles, and two closets.
