Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column exploring what you can rent for a set dollar amount in different neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out. Today we are looking at two-bedroom apartments at or under $1,000 per month.
The Roseland neighborhood has some larger rentals that’ll fit anyone’s budget. For instance, the monthly rent for a three-bedroom apartment in the Princeton Park pocket community is just $950. The units, originally built in the years after World War II, have been fully updated and feature newer finishes and appliances.
This Englewood two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has been thoroughly updated and is renting for just under a thousand bucks. The unit features new finishes, a slick kitchen, central heat and A/C, and hookups for laundry. This one can be rented for $990 per month.
There’s nothing in the listing description for this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment in Bronzeville, but what we do know is that it’s located on the third floor of a classic Chicago greystone and cats are allowed. At 750 square feet, it’s not totally cramped either. This one is renting for $1,000 per month.
For just over $1,000 per month, you can rent this refreshed two-bedroom in Humboldt Park. The unit boasts large bedrooms and also features central air and heat. Located in a classic brick two-flat, the unit is literally across the street from Humboldt Park (the park) and is just steps away from the Division Street bus. No pets allowed here, but there is storage space and a porch area.
