This Is What $1,000 A Month In Rent Would Get You All Around The U.S.

Let’s all move to North Carolina, people.

Brooklyn — $1,000

Size: 300-square-foot studio
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant
Amenities: It does have hardwood floors and high ceilings, but the kitchen is so close to the bed that you could probably cook an omelette while taking a nap.

Birmingham, Alabama — $825

Size: 1,103-square-foot two-bedroom apartment
Neighborhood: Hoover
Amenities: There’s a shared pool and tennis court, so you can rent until you retire.

Cleveland — $1,175

New York City — $960

Size: Not listed, but seeing as your bed also serves as the doorstopper, probably not a ton of space
Neighborhood: Little Italy
Amenities: This apartment boasts having central air, but you’ll have to enjoy it with a stranger…who will be your brand new roommate. (Yes, he already lives there.) You and this strangermate will be cool AF all summer long.

Portland, Oregon — $1,275

Size: A 1-bedroom apartment
Neighborhood: Belmont

A few others were swapped because the deal really WAS too good to be true and possibly a scam (lookin’ at you Portland and Asheville).
