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: $1,300.
↑ This 950-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom Uptown is filled with charming features, like hardwood floors in the bedroom and living room, pretty bathroom tile, a mint green toilet and sink, and what looks like slate tiles in the kitchen. The stove is tiny, like one you'd typically see in an efficiency, but check out that sink in the corner.
↑ This sweet former corner store in the Irish Channel has heigh ceilings, a sleek kitchen, central air and heat, and a washer and dryer. The 830-square-foot space has a bit of a loft look but with a location that's got old New Orleans charm.
↑ This 950-square-foot Riverbend two-bedroom, one-bathroom shotgun was recently renovated and features wood floors and ceilings, attractive bathroom tile, and a kitchen with lots of counter space. The place also has central air and heat and comes with a new washer and dryer.
↑ Your feelings about houses that still have their Katrina X-Codes aside, this newly renovated half of a shotgun double in Mid-City is on a quiet street very close to City Park. The 1,000 square-foot two-bedroom has hardwood floors, wood kitchen cabinets and a shared backyard and washer/dryer.
↑ Over in Bywater, this two-bedroom shotgun is right by Bacchanal and the area's other haunts. There's hardwood floors throughout (except in the kitchen), a clawfoot tub in the lavender bathroom, and a large cobblestone courtyard. You also get central AC and a washer/dryer.
