Check out this duplex at 270 West End Avenue on the Upper West Side, which just got pricechopped down to a pretty attractive $2,399,000. It's not cheap by any means, but considering that you're getting a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom duplex with 2,500 square feet space on prime Upper West territory, it's tempting. The CORE blog goes on to talk about the old/new contrast created by the pre-war building and the contemporary reno, which is neat. Maintenance might be an issue at $6,485/month, however. Other than that, a nicely renovated apartment in this neck of the woods at $959 per square foot? We're sure there's a buyer out there for this one.
