Which Downtown Brooklyn Luxury Condo Reigns Supreme?

New, 5 comments

Imagine you have around $900,000 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: 199 State Street #PHC 189 Schermerhorn #19J
Price: $899,000 $875,000
CC/Taxes: $834 $747
Square Footage: 1,000 910
Beds, Baths: 1, 1.5 2, 2

? The eleventh-floor penthouse of 199 State Street, or The Lookout Hill Condominium, offers fewer windows than one might expect from a penthouse, but makes up for that with a large private roofdeck. The bathroom also looks particularly fancy.

? The are many more windows and slightly less indoor space in this apartment in 189 Schermerhorn, also known, for some reason, as be@Schermerhorn. It has two full baths, and the building has a gym, which might help offset the embarrassment of its ridiculous name.
