See what you can get in NYC neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights, the East Village, and Sunnyside

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can buy 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 for sale for around $450,000.

Brooklyn Heights

A bright and airy Brooklyn Heights studio is going for $445,000. The main area is 33 feet long, and has a small kitchen and bathroom, along with a couple of closets. It’s just a short walk from there to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade in one direction, and the 2 and 3 trains at Clark Street in the other.

Compass
Washington Heights

A spacious one-bedroom in a Washington Heights co-op building is going for $439,900. Though it’s lacking in closet space, the apartment has two large rooms—the bedroom could fit a king-size bed—and what the listing bills as an eat-in kitchen. Maintenance is just $510/month, and the apartment is a block from the C train at 168th Street.

Triplemint
Sunnyside

Located on the second floor of a Sunnyside co-op, this one-bedroom apartment is asking $450,000, with a maintenance fee of $529/month. The more than 700-square-foot pad has a good amount of space in both the bedroom and living room, and a kitchen with plenty of cabinets and new appliances. It’s just one block from the 7 train and the shops along Queens Boulevard.

Prospect Park South

A 500-square-foot studio in a new development in Prospect Park South is going for $425,000. There are sleek fixtures and appliances, custom cabinetry, and wide-plank hardwood floors. The building itself, which is close to the B and Q trains at Church Avenue, also has outdoor space.

Halstead
East Village

And finally, in the East Village, a one-bedroom apartment is asking $459,000. That bedroom is rather small—just under 7 by 10 feet—and there’s also a small kitchen and bathroom with a shower stall. It’s located on the third floor of a co-op building on East 12th Street between First and Second avenues.
