Which Chelsea Condo Would You Drop $1.85 Million On?

New, 13 comments

Imagine you have around $1,850,000 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: 130 West 30th Street #3A/ 125 West 21st Street #3E
Price: $1,850,000 $1,850,000
Monthly Costs: $2,607 $1,539
Square Footage: 1,661 1,157
Beds, Baths: 2, 2 2, 2

↑ The similarities between these two apartments abound. They are both the exact same price. They are both on the third floors on their respective buildings. They both have second bedrooms that are currently being used as nurseries. The unit in 130 West 30th Street, however, is almost 50 percent larger, and also practically in Midtown.

↑ Thanks to a tax abatement, the apartment in 125 West 21st Street his much lower monthly costs, will makes up somewhat for the relative lack of square footage. In addition, it's got a washer/dryer and a whole lot of closet space.
