What $1,600/Month Can Rent You In New Orleans

New, 2 comments

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,600/month.

↑ On Ursulines Street in the French Quarter, this 700-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath apartment is in a two-story building from the 1830s. Pets are "generally okay" as long as they get along with the other dogs and humans on the property. Super bonus: Utilities, basic cable, and internet are included.

↑ This Mid-City spot near Orleans Avenue and Broad Street is within walking distance to the coming-soon Whole Foods and you better believe it's mentioned as a perk. There's a "gourmet kitchen" with a dishwasher and garbage disposal and the master bath has a whirlpool tub, but calling this three-bedroom, two-bath home a "luxury rental" seems like a bit of a stretch. Not only is the yard fenced in but the porch is, too! Small pets are cool with a non-refundable $250 deposit. Smokers are out of luck.

↑ On Marigny and Burgundy Streets in the Marigny neighborhood, this renovated one-bedroom, one-bath home has 600-square-feet of living space and a private back patio. Perks: a dishwasher, central heat and air, a washer/dryer, and a Whirlpool tub.

↑ This furnished two-bedroom 750-square-foot space on Magazine Street at Jefferson Uptown doesn't allow pets or those with a credit score under 700. In case the photos don't lure the renters in, the writer of this listing decided to include some "notable Uptowners" like authors Anne Rice (who doesn't live here anymore) and John Kennedy Toole (dead) and um, ethnobotanist Mark Plotkin. There's also a diners' guide in the ad with very detailed descriptions of local eateries around the rental. Anyway, the water, garbage, and internet bills are taken of, and first month, last month rent plus a $750 security deposit is due at signing.

↑ In the Central Business District on floor 13 (oooh!) of the Hibernia Tower is this one-bedroom, 793-square-foot corner apartment. Besides the view, perks include a washer/dryer in the unit, a fitness center, rooftop pool and cabana, and an attached parking garage with reserved parking.
