From three bedroom homes to one bedroom spaces.


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 Manayunk versus Old City? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: $2,100 a month.

Manayunk (4 bed, 2 bath)—This sleek apartment in Manayunk is a top contender for the most to offer at a $2,100 price point, with four bedrooms and a total of 1,600 square feet. It also has granite countertops, a wood stove, and hardwood floors, and it’s minutes from Manayunk restaurants and bars.


University City (3 bed, 2 bath)—The Manayunk home will find stiff competition in this University City apartment, which has $1,680 square feet of space as well as three bedrooms and a communal rooftop garden.

Washington Square West (1 bed, 1 bath)—This Washington Square apartment may not offer the most space (it’s only a one-bed place with 800 square feet) but it’s the apartment’s charm that’s a big draw.
