The Time Has Come to Decide Between UWS Condos

New, 6 comments

Imagine you have around $1,300,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two fairly similar condos. 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 41 West 72nd Street #11A 392 Central Park West #14C
Price $1,330,000 $1,1750
CC/Taxes $1,837 $998
Square Footage 1,000 1,200
Beds, Baths 2, 1.5 2, 2
Floor 11 14

On paper, 392 Central Park West, aka Park West Village, is clearly the superior apartment. It's 20% bigger, 13% cheaper, three floors higher, and has half the monthly charges, and a terrace to boot. However, on paper on which photos are printed, 41 West 72nd Street, aka The Hermitage, has the edge, although that could just be a staging issue. Location is also a factor, as the two buildings are located on opposite Upper West Side borders, and The Hermitage is approximately 30 blocks further downtown.
