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: $1,400/month.
Right on St. Charles Avenue in the Garden District sits this one-bedroom, one-bath rental. The 700-square-foot space is on the first floor of the house and has hardwood floors and a renovated (skinny) kitchen. Perkage here includes a washer/dryer in the unit, a front row seat for Mardi Gras parades, and a small yard.
↑ For $1,450 per month, the renter of this third-floor walk-up on St. Philip Street gets 588-square-feet of room, one bedroom, one bath, and in typical French Quarter rental fashion, a tiny kitchen. The place comes furnished, has a washer/dryer on site, and utilities are included up to $200 per month. No pets and no smokers.
↑ Fans of bold colors will dig this 1,100-square-foot Uptown rental, a two-bedroom, one-bath home that's been completely renovated on Upperline Street. There's original hardwood floors, new ceramic tile, "an elegant claw foot soaking tub," a washer/dryer, private yard, and a nice amount of kitchen perk alerts—dishwasher, garbage disposal, granite countertops. Pets are okay here but they have to be under 40 pounds and there are some breed specifications.
↑ There are no exterior shots and few brag-worthy details in the ad for this Mid-City spot on N. Olympia Street, and that can sometimes be a very telling sign. But the two-bedroom, two-bath home, that's renting for $1,450 a month, gets points for its roominess at 1,750-square-feet, its nice looking courtyard, and proximity to City Park.
↑ Over in the Marigny on N. Rampart Street is this two-bedroom, one-bath rental with 1,200-square-feet of space. Located across the street from the Healing Center, the apartment has closet space galore, shiny hardwood floors, a dishwasher, and the ultra rental perk of central heat and air. Those who want the washer/dryer set-up are going to have to cough up an extra $100 per month and dog owners are out of luck here.
