New Orleans Rent: What $900 Gets You in Gentilly, Hollygrove, Marigny, Treme, and the University Area

Comparing rentals in five neighborhoods

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: $900.

↑ Some 875 square-foot two-bedrooms are available for $895/month at the Gentilly, the new apartment building opening soon on St. Anthony Avenue. Units feature a washer/dryer, energy efficient appliances (including a dishwasher), keyless entry, free WiFi in common areas, gated parking, and more. The building is pet friendly.

↑ Over in Hollygrove, this one-bedroom upper unit is 800 square feet. It features hardwood floors, ample light and storage space, a kitchen with all appliances, a large living room and separate dining room, a utility room with washer and dryer, a screened porch, and second-story deck. No pets allowed.

↑ This one-bedroom gets major location points. Right in the Marigny Triangle, a block from Frenchmen Street, the 650 square-foot apartment is low on amenities (no washer/dryer, parking can be tough on the weekends), but if you want to be in the middle of the action, this would be perfect. Small pets are considered with a deposit.

↑ For $905, you get a two-bedroom in Treme that features hardwood floors, high ceilings, a large living area, washer/dryer hook ups, all necessary appliances, and off-street parking. Pets are allowed.

↑ This $895, 500 square-foot studio in the University Area was recently renovated. It’s small, but it’s in good condition and the kitchen has a lot of storage and normal-sized appliances (don’t you hate those weird mini stoves that come with studios?). No pets are allowed.
