Philly rent comparison: What $1,900 gets right now

With options in Northern Liberties, Rittenhouse, and more

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. Is one person's loft another person’s townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,900/month.

Northern Liberties (2 beds, 1 bath)—This 1,074-square-foot apartment is located right on the edge of Old City in Northern Liberties. Its exposed ductwork, big windows, and open floor plan will definitely appeal if you’re into that industrial chic look. There’s also in-unit laundry and a gym in the building. No word on pets.

Queen Village (1 bed, 1 bath)—This recently renovated apartment sits on the always bustling South Street in Queen Village. Within its 750 square feet of space, there are hardwood floors, tall ceilings, a modern kitchen, and in-unit laundry. Plus: The building has a community roof deck. Pets are welcome.

Rittenhouse Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—Available on June 1, this 780-square-foot apartment is in a Rittenhouse Square walk-up. It’s been recently renovated, so expect all new finishes in the kitchen and bathroom, but there’s still some character throughout, including deep window sills in the living room. Laundry is in-unit and small pets are welcome.

East Kensington (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—For $1,900/month, you’ll find more space up in East Kensington, where this bi-level apartment is up for grabs. It’s big, at 1,600 square feet, accentuated even further by the unit’s 16-foot-tall ceilings. Bonus: There are French doors that open to a small balcony and there’s in-unit laundry. Only one cat can live here, though.

North Philly (4 bedrooms, 2 baths)—Rounding out this week’s Curbed Comparisons is the largest apartment for rent on the list. For $1,900 you can rent out this four-bedroom unit (split the cost and your rent would be less than $500 a month). It’s not far from Temple’s campus, there’s in-unit laundry, and a backyard.
