A Battle of Long Island City's New Luxury Condos

New, 12 comments

Imagine you have around $700,000 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 10-50 Jackson Avenue #4A 5-19 Borden Avenue #1H
Price $665,000 $560,000
CC/Taxes $707 n/a
Square Footage 813 781
Beds, Baths 1, 1.5 1, 1

10-50 Jackson costs $105,000 (19 percent) more than 5-19 Borden Avenue, aka Murano. So what does that extra hundred grand get you? Well, there's the additional half bath, the larger bedroom, the 60 square foot balcony, and the much more kitchen-y looking kitchen. But is it enough?
