East Village Neighbors Square Off in the Deathcage

New, 7 comments

Imagine you have around $1,750,000 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: 111 Fourth Avenue #6I/ 115 Fourth Avenue #5G
Price: $1,500,000 $1,750,000
Monthly Costs: $1,507 $2,076
Square Footage: n/a 1,200
Beds, Baths: 2, 1 1, 2

? 111 Fourth Avenue, a co-op, is a corner loft with high ceilings and big windows. It was recently renovated (it last sold in 2009 for $955,000) so the kitchen and bathroom are all new. The building does not allow dogs.

? 115 Fourth Avenue, a condo, attempts to justify its higher price tag with an extra bathroom, a kitchen unto itself, and a seriously enormous walk-in closet/custom-shelved dressing room. There's also a washer/dryer in the unit. The building has a gym and does allow pets.
