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: $2,000
↑ Our first entrant into this week's Curbed Comparisons actually comes from Gallier Court. The 641 square foot one bedroom we were so taken with is finally for rent. 127 Carondelet St #3B offers high ceilings, new appliances, and many modern touches in a historic, James Gallier-designed building. $2,000 a month gets you right at the cusp of the CBD.
↑ 1134 Lowerline seemingly has everything you need to work and live. This two bedroom, one bath apartment seems to suggest that it offers an office in addition to its off-street parking and copious amounts of natural light. It's also $100 cheaper than our first Curbed Comparison and located mere walking distance from Tulane and Loyola. A decent deal all around, 1134 Lowerline is just $1,900 a month.
↑ Live above perch. and make your home decorating decisions all the more easier. 2844 Magazine #A is a quaint loft unit located in the heart of Magazine. This one bedroom, one bath apartment includes a bit of privacy despite its retailer below, including a cozy courtyard and private entrance. Bonus? Its $2,000 a month rental price includes all utilities.
↑ The potentially largest of our Curbed Comparisons also appears to curiously not list its square footage. 5622 Canal Blvd offers three bedrooms and two baths that look spacious and new but have empirical evidence to show for it despite photos. Check out the unit yourself, which comes with two off-street parking spots and all-new appliances. $2,000 a month gets you a quiet upstairs home close to City Park and the lake.
↑ According to Trulia, 3000 St Charles #308 was considered a "best value," so we figured we'd test that claim. This one bedroom, two bath has a fair amount of amenities, including copious balconies and a community pool and hot tub. Its interior is incredibly inviting, with pristine hardwood floors and natural light galore. $2,000 a month gets you into this 800 square foot unit but is it truly the best value?
