In this week's installment of Curbed Comparisons, here's a look at what $2,000 rents in three neighborhoods in Philly. Please do vote in the poll, which is after the jump
Old City: This glossy loft boasts exposed beams, hardwood, a spiral staircase, and all the period details a restored 1840's factory can provide. While there isn't enough space for more than two people, it's definitely in a good location. Rent is $1925/month, and you can bring your pets.
· 109 Church Street [Craigslist]
Northern Liberties: $2K can also rent you a whole 3 bedroom townhome on the northern edge of Northern Liberties. Granted, the kitchen looks a little cramped (that stove is tiny!), but there's a porch, a sideyard, a weird exposed rock basement wall, and it's located sort of close to Fishtown, so you can get to all your favorite faux-scruffy craft brew pubs on foot. Rent is $2000/month even.
· 413 Poplar Street [Trulia]
East Falls: Really, this is only an option if you have a car, but maybe you're tired of living directly in the city. For $2K, you can move out to Mt. Airy and still be a short drive away from center city. This house has 2 bedrooms, a fireplace, finished basement, garage, and many other trappings of suburban living. It's not downtown, but it is pretty. Rent is $2,000/month.
· 3321 W. Penn Street [Trulia]
