New, 4 comments

Imagine you have around $5,000,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two apartments 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 Showdown.

Address 222 Riverside Drive #5CB 400 West End Avenue #13CD
Price $5,250,000 $5,250,000
Monthly Fees $5,918 $4,805
Square Footage 3,078 3,260
Beds, Baths 5, 4.5 3, 3.5

Here we have yet another co-op vs. condo battle. In the co-op corner, 400 West End Avenue, aka The Wexford, which has slightly more square footage and slightly lower monthly costs. Representing the condos is 222 Riverside Drive, which significantly outclasses The Wexford in terms of bedrooms (5 to 3) and baths (4.5 to 3.5). The Wexford, however, boasts the bigger rooms, and more attractive interior with fancy molding and herringbone floors, while 222 Riverside is mostly covered in carpets.
