Two Fancy Upper West Side Co-ops Battle It Out

New, 10 comments

Imagine you have exactly $2,750,000 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: 239 Central Park West #6E/ 33 Riverside Drive #4A
Price: $2,750,000 $2,750,000
Maintenance: $3,083 $3,487
Beds, Baths: 3, 3 3, 3

? The advantages that 239 Central Park West boasts include fancy new finishes, a living room fireplace, and $400 lower maintenance fees. Among its disadvantages are a third room that's really a tiny servant's quarters tucked behind the kitchen and a master bedroom that is actually smaller than the second bedroom. It is located right on Central Park, though.

? 33 Riverside Drive has been on the market for almost a year and cut its price by $130,000 six months ago. It features a marble-floored gallery and dining room as well as some very sparkly chandeliers. The home office/third bedroom includes its own bathroom.
