The great thing about Craigslist is that it truly democratizes rental listings. Proof? Behold two listings posted within the same week.
The least expensive: $450 gets you a one-bedroom apartment at Lancaster Avenue and West Girard. Among the "conditions" the poster requires is that you "pass living reference." So, bring a pulse.
The most expensive: For $10,000 a month, consider this four-bedroom Symphony House condo. At 400 square feet, the private terrace is probably just a shade smaller than the West Philly apartment.
Now that's democracy in action.
