See what you can get in neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights, the Lower East Side, 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 $1,900/month.

↑ A micro studio within a “mansion building” on Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights can be yours for $1,950/month. The small kitchen is concealed behind what appears to be a sliding door (weird), but there are nice touches that include high ceilings, stained glass, a decorative fireplace, and arched windows.

↑ After a renovation, this one-bedroom in Inwood is going for $1,880/month. It comes with a queen-sized bedroom, a small but modern open kitchen, a spacious living room, and a decent amount of natural light. The 1 train’s 215th Street station is about a 10-minute walk away.

↑ Rent this spiffy two-bedroom in Weeksville, asking $1,875/month after a renovation. The apartment is within a four-story walk up and appears to be on one of the higher floors; however, it comes with hardwood floors, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a modern full bathroom, and lots of light.

↑ Exposed brick, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and wood-framed windows and doors are a few of the highlights of this one-bedroom on the Lower East Side. The $1,950/month apartment has been renovated, with new stainless steel kitchen appliances and a tiled backsplash. There’s a fair amount of natural light and storage space.

↑ An even $1,900/month rents a simple one-bedroom in Astoria. It has a light-filled living room with inlaid floors, a windowed kitchen that includes a dishwasher, and a king-sized bedroom with a large walk-in closet. The nearest subway station—the N and W’s Astoria Boulevard station—is a bit of a hike (about 12 minutes away).
