New Orleans rent comparison: What $1,500 gets you

See what $1,500/month rents in neighborhoods like the French Quarter, LGD, and more!

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a semi-regular column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today, we're looking at apartments renting around $1,500.

↑ If a perfect mix of original charm and modernization is what you’re looking for, do check out this 1,100 square foot two bedroom in the 7th Ward. The roomy apartment takes up one side of the double shotgun and has highlights like 12 foot ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors throughout, and a nice open floorplan for the common areas. There’s laundry in the apartment but sadly no mention of parking.

↑ This 1,000 square foot one bedroom condo in the French Quarter is available for $1,600/month—though you can add an extra $200 to have it come furnished. It has a lot of lovely features, like a beamed ceiling in the living room, exposed brick galore, and a second story to house the bedroom. That said, the real highlight is the outdoor pool for residents. No parking, but there is laundry in the building.

↑ If room is what you require, this three bedroom, two bathroom apartment in Freret is a solid option. Full disclosure: the listing calls it both a two and three bedroom, so it’s possible that the third one is “a convert the dining room into a bedroom” situation. It rents for $1,550/month and has no mention of laundry or parking.

↑ If you want to live uptown you can shell out $1,500/month for this 900 square foot one bedroom apartment right off Magazine Street. To call the original hardwood floors in this place gleaming would be an understatement. There’s laundry in the unit, a fenced backyard, and it’s one block from Whole Foods. Off street parking only.

↑ What more is there to say? The building itself is reason enough to move in. Basics stats are it’s a two bedroom that clocks in at 1,500 square feet; it rents for $1,600/month and is located in the LGD. The apartment takes up the entire second story, so that wraparound balcony is all yours. It also has its own parking spot.
