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 $1,700/month.
On the third floor of a walk-up building in East Harlem is this one-bedroom renting for an even $1,700/month. The apartment comes with wood floors, high ceilings, an open kitchen, and a decent amount of natural light. Sorry animal lovers, pets aren’t allowed.
After a gut renovation, this one-bedroom in Bushwick is going for $1,750/month. Among its highlights are a windowed kitchen with stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), wood floors throughout, and a decent amount of storage space. The nearest train station is the L line’s DeKalb Avenue stop—something to consider given the forthcoming shutdown.
Head to Washington Heights, where a compact studio can be yours for $1,695/month. Though the apartment is small, it’s been updated with an open kitchen that has new appliances, new wood floors, and a fully revamped windowed bathroom.
In Kew Gardens, an 800-square-foot one-bedroom is asking $1,700/month. The apartment has received a few upgrades, primarily in the windowed kitchen where there are new appliances. Other flourishes include inlaid wood floors, a sizable living room, and a spacious bedroom. The Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens subway station, where you can catch the E and F trains, is just a five-minute walk away.
An 850-square-foot unit in Brownsville offers two bedrooms, a sizable living room, a windowed kitchen with plenty of cabinet space, and a windowed bathroom, all for $1,750/month. The apartment is located on the third floor of a walk-up and is located less than 10 minutes away from the 2 and 3 line’s Saratoga Avenue station.
