Three Rental Options for $1.5K, From Spacious to 'Cozy'

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,500/month.


? Here's a 4 bedroom with 2 full bathrooms in up-and-coming Fishtown. Note the hardwood floors. Listing claims it's newly rennovated, which is true. Listing also claims it's "not far" from Northern Liberties and Old City public transit: maybe, but it's closer to the Berks El stop in Kensington. This one rents for $1,550/month.


? Here's a cute West Philly apartment that has one less bedroom, (but it's $100 cheaper). It's right off Clark Park, and the photos do indeed seem sunny, just like the listing claims. Rent is $1,450/month.
