See what you can get in neighborhoods like Harlem, Bay Ridge, and Fordham Heights

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 $1,400/month.

↑ Rent this micro studio in Harlem that comes “semi-furnished” for $1,400/month. There’s a Murphy bed from Resource Furniture, a compact kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and dining table that expands. The drawback is that there isn’t a private bathroom but a shared one that gets “professionally cleaned twice per week,” per the listing.

↑ Listing photos don’t reveal much about this studio in Bay Ridge, but if you trust the description, it comes with herringbone wood floors, a bay window, a kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a revamped bathroom. The R train’s Bay Ridge Avenue stop is half a mile away; it’s renting for $1,400/month.

↑ For $1,399/month, there’s this 600-square-foot studio in Elmhurst, featuring hardwood floors, arched doorways, and a windowed kitchen. Per the listing, there is “generous closet space” and the nearest train station is the 7 line’s 90 Street-Elmhurst Avenue stop, located about seven minutes away.

Bohemia Realty Group.

↑ In the Bronx, a one-bedroom in Fordham Heights wants $1,395/month. Its perks include plenty of natural light, a light-filled kitchen, a subway tile-lined bathroom, and a bedroom that’s large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed.

↑ And finally, in East Harlem, a tiny, renovated studio is asking $1,350/month. Though small, the kitchen has decent cabinet space along with stainless steel appliances. It’s located on the fourth floor of a walk-up and the nearest subway station (the 116th Street station for the 6 line) is five minutes away.
