Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,100.
↑ This cotton candy-colored one-bedroom is on St. Claude Avenue in Bywater, near the galleries in the St. Claude Arts District. The 1,100 square-foot space was recently renovated and includes central air and heat, a washer and dryer and a security system. There's an open house July 19 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. if you want to see it for yourself.
↑ "Old, but excessively charming" is how you could describe most things in New Orleans, but it's also how the French Quarter building housing this one-bedroom unit is described. The 541 square-foot apartment has a balcony (a must for your tiny, expensive French Quarter abode) and is semi-furnished.
↑ This Mid-City two-bedroom, one-bathroom is near the soon-to-open University Medical Center and Lafitte Greenway. The owner renovated the house recently, and it boasts new plumbing system, new electrical system, new central air, new paint and renovated windows. There's a washer and dryer out back, and the ad insists there are appliances in the kitchen despite their absence from the photos.
↑ A 1,100 square-foot one-bedroom for $1,100/month — how 'bout that. The Riverbend house comes with a pretty spacious living area, a small office, a clawfoot tub, central air and heat, and an in-apartment washer and dryer.
↑ This is a renovated two-bedroom shotgun Uptown. This is a traditional shotgun with walk-through rooms, but there's hardwood floors, a new kitchen and high ceilings.
