New Orleans Rent: What $1,500 Gets You in Bayou St. John, Black Pearl, Broadmoor, Uptown, and Lakeview

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: $1,500.

↑ This 1,350 square-foot, one-bedroom upper unit is in a 1899 home in Bayou St John. Features include high coved ceilings, original moldings and wood floors throughout, a wrap-around private balcony, an antique bathroom with original tile and bathtub, a washer/dryer, a dishwasher, and two off-street parking spots. No pets allowed.

↑ This 1,600 square-foot two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom in Black Pearl includes a dishwasher, washer/dryer, central air and heat. The apartment building, which is close to River Road, has a pool. No pets allowed.

↑ Over in Broadmoor, this 1,250 square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom has a lot of features: hardwood floors, a large veranda, a double parlor, good closet space, lots of windows, and central air and heat. But here’s one potential deal breaker: it includes no stove. And maybe no fridge. What? And only cats are allowed here.

↑ On Tchoupitoulas near Audubon Park and Children's Hospital, the 800 square-foot two-bedroom includes a spacious deck and fenced-in yard; independent bedroom with closets, heart of pine floors and private en-suite bathrooms; a washer/dryer; central heat and air; an alarm system; and off-street parking. No pets are allowed.

↑ For $1,495/month, you get this 1,400 square-foot three-bedroom, one-bathroom in Lakeview that’s close to City Park and Harrison Avenue. Recently renovated, it includes access to a fenced-in back yard, an in-unit washer/dryer, central air and heat. Cats and small dogs considered.
