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: $900
↑ This quaint multi-family home in Gentilly has perhaps the most interesting door frames we've seen on a rental. Sure, 4900 Painters St has tile in its bathroom and hardwood flooring throughout, but its the curved wooden frames that make its interior doors like cheesy futuristic that really draw you in. This two bedroom, one bath makes a point of showing you all the appliances you get, with one photo dedicated solely to a washer and dryer. $900 a month gets you into this smoke-free, pet-free home.
↑ If there were a Google Home View, whoever posted 910 N Prieur St's listing may very well have made use of it. Ignore the jagged exterior shot from a shoddy Google Street View photo, this two bedroom, one bath Treme shotgun double is a surprisingly good deal, featuring hardwood floors throughout as well as high ceilings and off-street parking. All that's missing is a washer and dryer, though the hookups are there. $855 a month gets you walking distance to Armstrong Park.
↑ 5846 W Deer Park Blvd is the first home on our Curbed Comparisons this week to state its square footage — 1,200 square feet, just so you know. It's also the only pet-friendly rental on the list. Equipped with a fully functioning fireplace, loads of kitchen countertop space, a washer and dryer, and assigned parking, this two bedroom, two and a half bath offers an amenity-filled retreat from the hubbub of downtown. $900 a month gets you peace and quiet in a convenient location.
↑ An awesome location and presumably a beautiful home with no exterior shots to speak of, the listing for 1710 S Carrollton St immediately boasts about all the oak trees that surround it and its streetcar views, which it fails to show you. What instead appears is a modest, 700 square foot one bedroom, one bath with a good amount of storage space. $895 a month gets you this Carrollton apartment perfect for college students and the minimalistic.
↑ 2646 N Johnson St is the second purple house to be featured on this Curbed Comparisons and proof that purple is one of the greatest colors ever. But we digress and delve into the hard facts of this two bedroom, one bath — in addition to all appliances, including a washer and dryer, this New Marigny double has central heat and air as well as snazzy granite counter tops and hardwood floors. $850 a month gets you a perfect in purple rental.
