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 person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,400/month.
↑ Rittenhouse Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—For just $1,395 a month, you can rent this apartment right in the heart of Rittenhouse's restaurants and a couple of blocks from the square. The pet-friendly building includes a 24/7 gym.
↑ Fairmount (1 bed, 1 bath)—You can rent the whole first floor of this pet-friendly rowhome in Fairmount for $1,400 a month. It’s a shotgun-style unit and features central AC, a decorative marble fireplace, hardwood floors, and access to a large backyard.
↑ Passyunk Square (2 beds, 1 bath)—Right off Passyunk Avenue is this pet-friendly 1,000-square-foot apartment with views of the skyline from the private terrace. The appliances are a tad dated, but if it helps, being so close to the foodie scene on East Passyunk probably means less time in the kitchen, anyway.
↑ Roxborough (2 beds, 1 bath)—Venturing farther up the Schuylkill, $1,400/month can get you the first floor of a corner rowhome with access to the front porch and huge backyard. It's a bit bare boned, and the closest SEPTA train station is over in Manayunk, but the apartment is basically just three blocks from the Wissahickon. Pets welcome.
↑ Temple University (3 beds, 1 bath)—North Philly offers the biggest bang for your buck with this 3-bedroom rowhome. It’s a spacious 1,128 square feet, featuring upgraded appliances and finishes. There’s also a backyard that with a little work could make for a great spot for grilling. And it’s six short blocks to the Broad Street Line. Pets welcome.
