See what $1,600 gets you in Washington Heights, Bed-Stuy, and Astoria

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 $1,600/month.

↑ A tiny studio in Washington Heights is renting for $1,625/month. There isn’t much to work with in terms of space, but there a few nice touches that include high ceilings, exposed brick, a modern kitchen, and a new bathroom.

↑ After a gut renovation, this two-bedroom in the Bronx’s East Tremont neighborhood is asking $1,650. The apartment is filled with sunlight and has new hardwood floors and decent-sized bedrooms.

↑ For $1,595/month, there is this modest one-bedroom in East Flatbush. The hardwood floors are nice, there’s a windowed kitchen, and the place gets a fair amount of natural light. One benefit: the nearest subway station is only about four blocks away, which isn’t terrible.

↑ A spacious one-bedroom in Woodside, Queens is going for an even $1,600/month. The apartment is located on the first floor of a prewar building and has a large living room, plenty of windows, and a generous amount of closet space. The nearest train station—the 7 train’s Woodside stop—is a four-minute walk away.

↑ Rent this fairly large studio in Astoria for $1,650/month. Per the listing, there are four closets throughout so storage space shouldn’t be an issue, and natural light pours in through the large windows.

↑ After a recent renovation, this studio apartment along Marcy Avenue in Bed-Stuy is renting for $1,600/month. The space offers shiny hardwood floors, big windows, a revamped bathroom, and a new kitchen with stainless steel appliances.
