Prewar Prospect Heights Co-ops Enter the Deathcage

New, 5 comments

Imagine you have around $500,000 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: 205 Park Place #3/ 125 Eastern Parkway #6G
Price: $449,000 $425,000
Maintenance: $625 $667
Square Footage: n/a 756
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 1, 1

? 205 Park Place is a little more expensive and probably a decent amount smaller—there's no square footage listed, but adding up the three rooms brings us to around 525 square feet, not counting the long hallway or the bathroom. It is, however, replete with prewar details from wood molding around the doors and windows to a decorative fireplace to exposed brick in the kitchen. It also has lots of natural light, with windows in every room.

? 125 Eastern Parkway is, as mentioned before, larger and cheaper. It has more closets and even includes a little home office. It's also on a higher floor and right across the street from Prospect Park (it appears to be facing away from the park, though). Its prewar details, however, are less numerous and less charming, and the living contains a single window tucked into the corner.
