What you can rent in Philly for $1,100 a month

From Glenside to University City

One of the rooms in the $1,100-a-month home in East Falls

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. How many beds can you get in East Falls versus the Art Museum neighborhood? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: around $1,100 a month.

East Falls (1 bed, 1 bath)—East Falls is a bit out of the way for people who like to be in the city, but this place is worth it. It has hardwood floors, a washer and dryer, and tons of windows that let in plenty of light. There’s even some history to the place—it was constructed in the early 1900s. Plus, as an added bonus, you can bring dogs and cats.


University City (1 bed, 1 bath)—This newly-renovated space in University City could be the right fit for young professionals or students. It has high ceilings, a big bay window in the bedroom and hardwood floors. Plus, it’s at a killer location—43rd and Chestnut, just blocks from the popular 40th Street restaurants and bars.


Art Museum (3 bed, 2 bath)—The number one draw of this Art Museum-area home is the space. In addition to its three bedrooms, it has a large kitchen with granite counter tops, a (separate) dining room and high ceilings. Plus, its hard to beat a home with a fireplace—even a decorative one.


Glenside (2 bed, 1 bath)—Don’t be thrown by the dark photos, this home has plenty of charm (and light). It also has hardwood floors, and an updated kitchen area and bathroom. One of the coolest details about the place is its storage, much of which is built right into the walls in the form of bookshelves and cabinets


Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—This sleek and sunny apartment in Fishtown is great for one person or a couple. It offers high ceilings, shining tile floors, and well-placed windows that shed lots of light into the apartment’s living and bedrooms.
