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: $2,000.
↑ The rear, two-story unit of this French Quarter house has high ceilings and a lush brick courtyard out back. You get 1,107 square feet of space, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There's also a dishwasher, washer and dryer. Things seem to get a little cramped and carpet-y on the second level.
↑ The two-story unit in this 19th century Lower Garden District manor has a kitchen (with a dishwasher) and bathroom that were renovated last year. Less than a block from Magazine Street, this beauty boasts 11-foot ceilings, covered balcony, rear courtyard, a heart of pine stairwell, and a washer and dryer.
↑ A 895 square-foot unit available in the old Krauss Department Store at 1201 Canal St. in the CBD (at the edge of the French Quarter) has two
bedrooms, two bathrooms, hardwood floors, a sleek kitchen, and a suite of building amenities including a pool, gym and "24 hour dog walk area." The rent event includes valet parking — how fancy.
↑ This colorful Tchouptioulas Street one-bedroom got a "loft-like" renovation with exposed beams, high ceilings, and an open living area. There's gleaming hardwood floors, a brand-new kitchen, a shared backyard and unfortunately, a carpeted second level. The best part? The house is mere steps from Hansen's Sno-Bliz and very close to a Rouses grocery store.
↑ Beyond the cute exterior, this two-bedroom University Area single-family house is filled with pretty details: hardwood floors, colorful fireplace mantles, stained glass windows and a clawfoot tub. There's also built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases, a storage shed, washer and dryer, dishwasher and central air/heat.
