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: $1,100/month.
↑Spruce Hill (1 bed, 1 bath)—Just a short bus or bike ride away from University City, this 650-square-foot rental features hardwood floors, a quaint window alcove, and a spacious balcony. The apartment puts you a block from the Local 44 pub, Honest Tom's Taco Shop, and the Farmacy.
↑Brewerytown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Always wanted to live in a holier-than-thou apartment? Here's your chance, since this unit is in North Abbey, a 19th-century church. The unit features birch floors, laundry, surround sound, and basement storage. Pets OK!
↑Kensington (2 beds, 1 bath)—This two-story rental is 1,610-square-feet, which gives you plenty of room to breathe. There's also a private patio out back, a wall-mounted table in the dining area, and laundry in the basement. Got a dog? Pets are OK, and there's plenty of green space for your pup to run around at the nearby Aramingo Square.
↑Avenue of the Arts South (Studio, 1 bath)—Who needs more space when this studio puts you in the heart of Center City, between Washington Square West and Rittenhouse Square? Amenities are few and far between—the listing only reports AC and a dishwasher—but you'll be so close to everything it won't really matter.
↑Wissahickon (2 beds, 1 bath)—If outdoor space is your thing, this first floor apartment has got you covered. The 900-square-foot rental features a patio and huge backyard. Plus, you're a quick run or bike ride from the edge of Wissahickon Valley Park. The kitchen and bathroom have been recently renovated, and with five closets you won't have any issue with storage.
