Which Upper East Side Co-op is Worthier of $1.8 Million?

New, 9 comments

Imagine you have around $1,800,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two condos 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 63 East 79th Street #PH 136 East 64th Street #6F
Price $1,799,000 $1,695,000
Maintenance $2,672 $2,258
Square Footage 1,450 n/a
Beds, Baths 2, 2 2, 2

The penthouse in 63 East 79th Street costs $104,000 (6 percent) more than its counterpart, 136 East 64th Street, and also has $414 (18 percent) higher maintenance costs. It makes up for that slight disparity, however, with three terraces, and by being brave enough to tell you what its square footage is. It's also somewhat newer looking in the kitchen department and it doesn't have that weird wall of mirrors thing that 64th has going on.
