Which Six-Digit West Chelsea Condo Would You Take?

New, 21 comments

Imagine you have around $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: 445 West 19th Street #3C/ 555 West 23rd Street #S9A
Price: $750,000 $749,000
CC/Taxes: $1,070 $791
Square Footage: 542 502
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 1, 1

? 445 West 19th Street is 40 square feet bigger than its counterpart (not such a small deal when we're talking about sub-600-square-foot pads), but the real selling point here is the 50-square-foot private balcony.

? 555 West 23rd Street certainly looks a good deal brighter, although that could just be a trick of the photography. It also has lower monthly costs, at least until 2017, when the tax abatement expires, and a bigger living room (but smaller bedroom).
