From Uptown to the French Quarter

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 $1,800.

Piety Street at Dauphine Street

For $1,750/month you can live in this renovated Bywater apartment that sits less than four blocks from the Mississippi River. Measuring at 1,180 square feet, this unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Highlights include its hardwood floors, built-in closets, and studio space. Its kitchen has stainless steel appliance, stone counters. A tranquil shared courtyard sits at its rear. If you’re looking to bring your pets, the owner will consider them on a case-by-case basis.

4416 Canal Street

Part of this Mid-City double rents for $1,900/month. Measuring at 1,250 square feet, this unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It has a formal living and dining room.

Though, our favorite part of this home is its shared outdoor entertainment space. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to bring pets under the current rental agreement.
