Which Brick-Filled Tribeca Apartment Would You Live In?

New, 14 comments

Imagine you have around $2,900,000 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: 52 Thomas Street #5C/ 27 Leonard Street #3
Price: $2,895,000 $2,800,000
Monthly Charges: $2,306 $815
Square Footage: 1,745 1,641
Beds, Baths: 1, 2 1, 2

↑ This unit in 52 Thomas Street boasts a large, open living room and dining area; exposed brick; expensive-looking finishes; lots of windows; and a small, glass-walled office. There's also a washer/dryer. It's a very nice apartment, but will it be any match for...

↑ This unit in 27 Leonard Street has somewhat of an unfair advantage, with its tax abatement (expiring in 2018) and oddly low common charges resulting in just over one third the monthly costs. It is slightly smaller, though, and has fewer windows. Still, if you're a fan of exposed brick, ceiling beams, and ducts, this should be the apartment for you.
