Decide Between Two Six-Digit Apartments in Prospect Heights

New, 14 comments

Imagine you have around $630,000 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: 338 Prospect Place #2A/ 230 Park Place #6N
Price: $629,000 $599,000
Monthly Costs: $848 $1,104
Square Footage: n/a 950
Beds, Baths: 2, 1 1, 1

? If it weren't for the telephone booth-like kitchen, this 2BR condo at 338 Prospect Place, complete with a deck, would be pretty unimpeachable. Even with the kitchen, though, it seems like a very nice place, with an abundance of natural light and closets, and a tax abatement through 2021.

? This 950-square-foot co-op, For Sale By Owner at 230 Park Place, features a much more amply-sized kitchen, but only one bedroom. It does have a "dressing room" and a "gallery," however—basically, two semi-usable rooms. The living room is also smaller, but it is on a higher floor (sixth, as opposed to second).
