Newly Renovated Upper East Side Townhouses Butt Heads

Imagine you have around $25,000,000 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 16 East 95th Street 120 East 71st Street
Price $24,900,000 $18,000,000
Stories 5 5
Square Feet 8,000 6,600
Built In 1899 1879
Yard Gladiator-style fighting pit/ Stone patio with planters

The key thing to consider when decided whether you want 16 East 95th Street, the 8,000-square-foot townhouse, or 120 East 71st Street, the 6,600-square-foot townhouse, is that the former is $6.9 million more expensive, and think of everything you could do with that extra $6.9 million. You could, for instance, buy some curtains for that bathroom with the huge windows in front of the tub. Some really, really expensive curtains. There's a lot more to consider about these two places—too much to list here—so we'll just let you pour over the listings.
