See what you can get in neighborhoods like Astoria. Murray Hill, and Flatbush

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 $1,750/month.

If you don’t mind a three-flight walk-up, there is this bright studio, located on the Upper East Side. The apartment, priced at $1,800/month, comes with a small windowed kitchen, hardwood floors, a large window in the living area, at least two closets for storage, and a windowed bathroom.


In Astoria, a one-bedroom within a multi-family home is going for $1,750/month. The amount gets you a sizable living room, a spacious kitchen, a bedroom that’s large enough to accommodate a queen-sized bed, and a fair amount of natural light. The listing description also notes that the apartment is just around the corner from Astoria Park and the waterfront.

$1,700/month can rent you a large studio in Sunset Park, complete with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and a decorative fireplace. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, white cabinets, and a small island, while there is a closet with walk-in shelves.

Head to Flatbush, where a newly renovated one-bedroom can be yours for $1,800/month. You get a fully revamped windowed kitchen, hardwood floors throughout, a frosted sliding door that separates the living room from the bedroom, and an in-unit washer/dryer. If you’re an animal lover, there’s good news: both cats and dogs are allowed.

Last but not least, there is a light-filled studio, along Second Avenue and East 37th Street in Murray Hill, that’s going for $1,750/month. Highlights here include large windows, hardwood floors, a decorative fireplace, and a marble-clad bathroom.
