New, 5 comments

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: $1,600/month.

Logan Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—If this 491-square-foot unit in the Arch building ever feels too tight, at least you'll be within a block of the Ben Franklin Parkway to stretch your legs. Amenities include a fitness center, media theater, club room, and bike maintenance.

Old City (1 bed, 1 bath)—Located in a former warehouse, this rental unit is 1,003-square-feet and features exposed brick in the living room and bedroom. There's also laundry in the unit, and access to a courtyard. The condos are in the heart of historic Old City, putting you within walking distance of Elfreth's Alley and the Betsy Ross house.

Mantua (2 beds, 1 bath)—Future renters must love art if you want to live in this historic unit. Part of an artist's community started by the Tiberino family, this home is an actual art museum that still houses a first-floor gallery. The kitchen could use a lot of work, but there's access to a private deck, and rent includes free access to the all of the museum's events and shows.

Point Breeze (2 beds, 1 bath)—This two-story home in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Point Breeze has been recently painted and updated with a new kitchen that has stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The two bedrooms and full bathroom are upstairs, and there's a private patio in the back. The home is also within walking distance of the Broad Street line.

Fairmount (2 beds, 1 bath)—This two-story apartment is loaded with charm, from the hardwood floors to the built-in archway with cabinets on the first floor. The bedrooms, bathroom, and laundry are on the second level. And at 2315 Brown Street, the apartment is within walking distance to local pubs and restaurants.
