Which Park Avenue Pad Would You Spend Your Millions On?

New, 9 comments

Imagine you have around $11,000,000 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.

[Left: 812 Park Avenue, Right: 502 Park Avenue]

Address: 812 Park Avenue #11/12C 502 Park Avenue #18A
Price: $9,750,000 $11,500,000
Monthly Costs: $6,063 $8,690
Square Footage: n/a 3,037
Beds, Baths: 3, 3.5 3, 3.5

? The cheaper of the two apartments, 812 Park Avenue is a nine-room duplex with an abundance of original details—crown molding, herringbone floors, carved over-door lintels, etc. It also includes a fireplace, built-in shelves, a sweeping staircase, and a library.

? The apartment in 502 Park Avenue, also known as the Trump Park Avenue, is both pricier and newer than its slightly-more-uptown counterpart. The differences appear to be most notable in the bathroom and kitchen, in so far as the bathroom and kitchen in the Trump Park Avenue look great and the bathroom and kitchen in 812 Park aren't even pictured. The 18th floor Trump Park Avenue pad also features a huge picture of an ice cream cone and only one zebra print pillow, which, for an apartment in a Trump building, is actually fairly restrained.
