Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Los Angeles neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Our friends at Zumper have helped us out finding listings for today's price: $1,150. Vote on the best one after the jump.
↑ An upstairs unit in this North Hollywood complex means you get to use that dramatic staircase. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment also comes with on-site laundry facilities and one parking space. Rent is $1,100.
↑ Check out those arches. You could take photos for a prom in front of those things. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in Arlington Heights in a two-story complex has what looks like a built-in vanity table in the bathroom and at least one ceiling fan, the latter of which will be very helpful in the summer because there is no mention of air-conditioning. Rent is $1,195 a month.
↑ It's not in the ritzy part of Pasadena, but it's not in the dodgy part either. This cute one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in a duplex doesn't have much in terms of curb appeal (the large yard is mostly dirt), but inside it's clean and has a certain old-timey charm. BYOWD (Bring Your Own Washer/Dryer): there are laundry hook-ups. The rent is $1,200 a month.
↑ The listing photos for this Little Armenia one-bedroom, one-bathroom get right down to business: just one shot of each room in the house (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room). Take it or leave it. A confident apartment for a confident tenant. The monthly rent is $1,200.
↑ An apartment in France? Nope, that's just a French-Normandy-style building in Ktown. The one-bedroom unit up for grabs here has newly installed wood floors and two whole parking spaces. The parking alone is probably worth half the $1,195 rent to a lot of people.
