New, 7 comments

Imagine you have around $2,600,000 to spend on a place 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: 160 Central Park South 1830/33/ 100 Central Park South #3A
Price: $2,600,000 $2,600,000
Monthly Costs: $6,133 $2,893
Square Footage: 1,530 938
Beds, Baths: 2, 2.5 1, 1.5

↑ This marble-floored 2BR in 160 Central Park South (aka Essex House) is a solid 64 percent larger than its competitor, but its hefty common charges may put it out of the running. If you can stomach the $4,235/month, though, it comes with full hotel services.

↑ This updated prewar condo in 100 Central Park South also features some marble, but in the normal places, like the kitchen and bathroom. It includes beamed ceilings and crown molding.
