Welcome 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: $1,000photos via Trulia
↑ This open concept apartment sure looks cramped given its photos. Don't let the tight shots of this Uptown rental fool you, however. 3010 Cadiz allows for lots of storage and room to entertain, as the living room effortlessly flows into the kitchen. A particular perk is that the power bill is included in your rent, especially if the South really is getting that colder than normal winter that's been predicted. $1,000 a month gets you a spacious, modern apartment.
↑ Our largest rental on this list offers three bedrooms and two full bathrooms for just $1,100 a month. 5449 Chartres St even includes a spacious yard as well as lovely accents like high ceilings and decorative fireplaces. The Holy Cross home has wood floors galore and includes appliance basics, like a stove, dishwasher, and microwave. Sadly, there's no word on washer/dryer hookups, which may be a problem since there appears to be no nearby laundromats.
↑ 634 St Ferdinand St acts as a definite barometer of how expensive the Marigny has become. $900 a month gets you a 700 square foot one bedroom, simple as that. The humble home is plenty nice inside, though we've got no idea what's going on with that kitchen since the photos are so blurry. Attic storage helps make up for the simple digs, as well as a washer/dryer hookup.
↑ Normally one bedrooms in an apartment complex wouldn't completely catch our eye, but 2309 Sixth St is different — it's got a breakfast bar. It's also the only rental on this list that allows for a pet, (cats are cool!) and explicitly states that it's energy efficient. Other odd amenities include a Foosball table and pool tables because, why not? $925 a month gets you a fairly modern "luxury loft" in Central City.
↑ We've long been fascinated by the Preserve apartments in the heart of MidCity. The former site of Baumer Foods Inc, which manufactures Crystal Hot Sauce, has been turned into lovely luxury apartments. One bedrooms start at $1,050 a month, making them a shoe-in for this week's Curbed Comparisons. Located at 4301 Tulane Ave, the complex offers a fitness center, a business center, and even weekday continental breakfasts, making it sound like you'd be perpetually living in a hotel, if that kind of thing is up your alley.
