Stairs Battle Granite Floors in Two West Village Co-ops

New, 21 comments

Imagine you have around $1,000,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two co-ops in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address 88 Charles Street #2C 14 Horatio Street #9D
Price $949,000 $895,000
Maintenance $978 $1,440
Square Footage 750 800
Price per Square Foot $1,265 $1,118
Beds, Baths 1, 2 1, 1
Floor 2 9

14 Horatio Street has the slight advantage in terms of size and price, coming out to $1,118 per square foot to 88 Charles Street's $1,265 per square foot. 88 Charles has approximately 33% lower monthly maintenance costs, however, as well as an extra bathroom. It also has a spiral staircase leading to the bedroom, which definitely looks great in pictures but might be kind of a nuisance in real life. 14 Horatio's main quirk is the seldom-seen granite flooring throughout, which, like the stairs, definitely looks cool (well, different) in photos, but probably makes the apartment a little chilly in the wintertime.
