Which Expensive West Village Rental Would You Make Yours?

New, 13 comments

Imagine you have around $7,000/month to blow on a rental 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 Deathmatch.

Address: 45 Grove Street/ 421 Hudson Street
Rent: $7,000 $6,495
Square Footage: 1,000 1,279
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 2, 2

↑ Just to get this out of the way, 45 Grove Street is both smaller and more expensive, so those are not points in its favor. Then again, when you're spending this much money on a rental, it's unclear how much the numbers even matter any more. The apartment is filled with prewar details—molding, mantle, chandelier—and comes fully furnished, so that's a plus.

421 Hudson Street is a duplex and has two bedrooms, although one of them, situated over the kitchen, is open to the dining room below. The details aren't as interesting, though there is a large chandelier, but the space and rooms are there.
