See what you can get in neighborhoods like Prospect Heights, Chelsea, and Harlem

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Today, we’ve found five apartments within $40,000 of today’s price: $800,000.

In Prospect Heights, a charming and bright pre-war two-bedroom sports a contemporary remodel including an open kitchen with stylish wood cabinets and black hardware. The co-op retains its intricate ceiling and pendant moldings, and glass doors allow light to flow from the front bedroom—set up here as an office—into the living room. The bathroom comes clad in an attractive gray subway tile. A major perk not pictured: The co-op comes with its own washer dryer. It’s on the market with Corcoran for $795,000, and carries a $799 monthly maintenance fee. [Floorplan]

A Harlem two-bedroom is on the market with Keller Williams NYC for $799,000. The entrance opens up onto a petite fully-updated kitchen and living area that also lets out onto a large private terrace (different from the one pictured here, which is off the bedrooms.) The larger of the two bedrooms comes with a small walk-in closet and a seating area that’s currently staged as an office. The smaller bedroom is being used by the seller as a den. Monthlies run $887.

A gut-renovated West Village one-bedroom comes with custom millwork and sophisticated but low-maintenance finishes like Super White quartzite countertops and DuChateau wide plank floors. The bathroom features statuary marble floors, a deep glass-enclosed soaking tub, and a seated vanity area. Two large closets pad the entry foyer. The apartment is asking $780,000 with Compass, and has a $1,115 monthly maintenance charge. [Floorplan]

$760,000 buys a high-ceilinged one-bedroom in Brooklyn Heights. The top-floor apartment comes with 10-foot ceilings and thoughtful architect-designed touches like custom built-in storage in the bedroom. It also comes with high-end finishes like Caeserstone countertops, Dornbracht fixtures, and a Durvait sink in the bathroom with a matching floating vanity. Just one flight up from the apartment is the shared roof deck with views of Brooklyn and beyond. Halstead has the listing. Monthly maintenance runs $871. [Floorplan]

A corner co-op in Chelsea comes with an all-white updated kitchen and a classic-looking subway tiled New York bathroom. The apartment’s large bedroom has a substantial sized walk-in closet that provides the bulk of the storage for this space. The many windows in this apartment overlook neighboring gardens, and the apartment is a short walk from the Whitney Museum of American Art. Core has the $799,000 listing. Monthly maintenance runs $1,153. [Floorplan]
