Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various neighborhoods. Is one person's loft another persons's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,200/month.


Northern Liberties (2 beds, 2.5 baths)—This 1,336-square-foot modern unit on 1306 N. 6th Street is newly constructed. Its oversized windows bring in lots of light, there are oak floors, and modern finishes throughout. There's also extra storage for each unit in the basement, and a fenced-in backyard. Pets welcome.


Fairmount (1 bed, 1 bath)—Ever wanted to live in a mansion? Now you can, for $2,200. This 1,000-square-foot unit is in the Bergdoll Mansion on Green Street and features crown molding, a fireplace, high ceilings, lovely archways, and an updated kitchen. Parking is included.


Spring Arts (3 beds, 2 baths)—The future renter of this 1,720-square-foot unit will have a cool talking point at the housewarming party: The building was a former Trolley repair factory. The first level features the living area and kitchen; upstairs you'll find the three bedrooms.


Manayunk (4 beds, 2 baths)—This picturesque rental home sits right against Manayunk Park at 4219 Boone Street, and its within walking distance of Pretzel Park. Plus, it has its own front porch and private backyard. As if the four bedrooms wasn't enough space!
