Philly rent comparisons: What $1,300 gets right now

See what $1,300/month rents in neighborhoods like Brewerytown, East Passyunk, Germantown, and more

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today, we're looking at apartments renting for $1,300 a month.

Brewerytown (1 bed, 1 bath)—For $1,300 a month, you can have this whole rowhome to yourself in Brewerytown. It’s a bi-level apartment that offers a resemblance of loft-style living, with the bedroom/office taking up the entire second level. There’s also a good-sized back patio, and the home comes with a flat-screen TV.

Callowhill (2 beds, 1 bath)This apartment is in the old Astrocade, which used to be a music venue-arcade-apartment building all rolled into one. The recently renovated unit comes with laundry, and the location puts you right next to a portion of the future Rail Park. Pets welcome.

East Falls (3 beds, 1 bath)—This rental puts you right in East Falls, not far from Kelly Drive. There’s a dining room and galley-style kitchen in the 960-square-foot home, and the upstairs bedrooms are all carpeted. As for outdoor space, there’s a front porch and back patio.

East Passyunk (1 bed, 1 bath)—Located at 9th and Morris, this rental is only about three short blocks to all of the restaurants and pubs on East Passyunk Avenue. The sunny, 750-square-foot rental comes partially furnished and with a flat-screen TV. Sorry, no pets.

Germantown (2 beds, 1 bath)—For $1,300/month, you can live in a historic mansion in Germantown—just hope you don’t mind slanted ceilings. The unit is on the top floor of the property, so each room is essentially tucked into each corner of the rental. The photos may not be doing the apartment justice: Per the listing, it’s actually the largest rental on this list, clocking in at 1,363 square feet.
