I'm noticing the common trend with the "Heights".

You are comparing three completely different areas, which probably don't have much in common except Pre-war buildings. A person who would live in Brooklyn Heights, would probably never consider Washington Heights, and etc...

Out of the three, Brooklyn Heights is the most expensive neighborhood, and also the most expensive in Brooklyn as a whole, with Dumbo/Vinegar Hill close seconds. Prices in BK Heights are maybe a few dollars off from those in better neighborhoods of Manhattan. You will get smaller apartments here at premium prices. 1 Bedrooms range in the upper $2,000.

West New York, which is near Hudson Heights is on the higher side, a large 3 bedroom with a massive living room and 2.5 bathrooms will be in the high $4000's.

Washington Heights is very attractive along Riverside Drive, but I only know it visually and can't comment on anything else. Great architecture, attractive pre-war buildings.

Are you considering 1 of the 3 areas?

You overlook Inwood which is the most reasonable and also the most beautiful of all the area you mentioned, Take a look put 10034 in the trulia finder above and see what they got for rent just on this sight!

As a long-time resident of Hudson experience related to these two neighborhoods is that Upper Manhattan can offer better and more spacious Prewar floorplans, Pricing is more favorable as well.
If your are a serious renter looking to make a move...please feel free to email or phone me!

They are both very different locations, but Upper Manhattan has some really huge apartments at good prices so I wouldn't count them out. And, you might also try looking at Astoria and Sunnyside which are cheaper than Brooklyn, albeit a bit quieter than the other two locations overall (although Central Astoria on the weekends is super busy).

Much will depend on exact location, size, condition, etc.; if looking to rent, consider working with an agent of your own, he/she will be your best guide.
