How Can You Even Decide Between These Yorkville Co-ops?

New, 5 comments

Imagine you have around $1,300,000 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 1725 York Avenue #35B 525 E 89th Street #3A
Price $1,225,000 $1,295,000
Maintenance $2,578 $2,367
Square Footage n/a 1,250
Beds, Baths 2, 2 2, 2
Floor 35 3

In terms of size, price, and location, these two apartments are very evenly matched, so let's just start with the most obvious difference: 1725 York Avenue is 32 floors higher and features a terrace. So there's that. The terrace, however, is situated above a busy York Avenue intersection, while 525 East 89th Street, aka Gracie Gardens, is located on a quieter-looking, more tree-lined street about a block away. So there's that, too. Ultimately, this should be a very close one.
