5 apartments in 5 different NYC neighborhoods

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 $1,850/month.

If you’re amenable to living off the L train (and the M!), this Ridgewood one-bedroom, going for $1,830/month, could be for you. The apartment has a brand new bathroom and kitchen, along with a queen-sized bedroom. If you’ve got a cat, good news: pets are welcome here.

Because there is surely someone who would pay $1,850/month for a studio in the East Village, there’s this apartment, which is small, but right off of 14th Street and First Avenue. According to the listing, it can fit a queen-sized bed, along with some other furniture; it also has a new kitchen and a decent-looking bathroom.

A 19th-century Bed-Stuy mansion has been recently renovated into an apartment building with 26 units, including this studio, asking $1,850/month. The corner unit has large windows, new appliances and the kitchen and bathroom, and perks like laundry in the building and central air.

In Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a one-bedroom apartment that was recently renovated—it has a new kitchen, and the like—is going for $1,850/month. It’s got plenty of exposed brick and hardwood floors; it’s also just a few blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at Sterling Street.

And finally, on the Upper East Side, a studio that was once featured in Domino is going for $1,875/month. The apartment itself is small—only 300 square feet—but it does have its own private balcony, which might make up for the lack of interior space. It’s located on East 84th Street between Second and Third avenues.
