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 $10,000 of today’s price: $350,000.
↑ First up is a studio in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, that’s asking an even $350,000 (buyers would need to put at least 10 percent down). The apartment is’t huge, but the galley kitchen is separate from the common area, and the bathroom is nicely sized. It also has the benefit of being around the corner from the Q at Cortelyou Road.

↑ If you’re looking for more bang for your buck, a two-bedroom co-op in Riverdale is going for $359,000, with a monthly maintenance charge of $933. There’s no floorplan with the listing, but its two bedrooms appear to be quite spacious, and there’s a separate dining area close to the kitchen. It’s a ten-minute walk from the 1 at 242 Street-Van Cortlandt Park, which also means the park itself is close by—another perk.
↑ In Manhattan, a studio within the Tudor City complex is also asking $359,000. This is not a big apartment—the living area is just around 200 square feet—but if you’re looking for convenient access to Midtown at this price point, this would be your best bet. The building itself has laundry, a gym, a doorman, and other amenities. [Floorplan]
↑ A Brooklyn Heights one-bedroom with an updated kitchen is asking—yes, again—$359,000. The two rooms are pretty large, with enough space in the common area for a dining nook and a living room. It’s also located on one of the neighborhood’s prettiest blocks, and close to transit. But there is a catch: You’ll need to be able to do an all-cash deal—but there won’t be board approval, which is something. [Floorplan]
↑ And finally, a renovated one-bedroom in a Woodside co-op building is going for $355,000. The location isn’t the best—it’s right on hectic Queens Boulevard—but it is “both functional and spacious,” per the brokerbabble. A large foyer leads into the living area, which has a kitchen in the middle of everything; the bedroom is big, there’s lots of closet space, and there’s even an extra “office” (a teeny cubby with no windows) that could be used for extra storage.
