Which Crazy Fancy Sutton Place Co-op Would You Buy?

New, 13 comments

Imagine you have $4,750,000 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: 333 East 57th Street #12B/ 45 Sutton Place South #PHK
Price: $4,750,000 $4,750,000
Maintenance: $6,087 $7,482
Square Footage: 3,000 2,600
Beds, Baths: 4, 3.5 3, 3.5

↑ This 12th-floor co-op in 333 East 57th Street has the size advantage, at 3,000 square feet, and also boasts 23 percent lower monthly costs. With nine rooms total, it includes an eat-in kitchen, butler's pantry, maid's room, and separate dining room. Surprisingly, there's no powder room.

↑ The main highlight of this penthouse unit in the 20-story 45 Sutton Place South is the large. south-facing planted terrace that looks out over the East River. It was listed last year for $5.5 million and is now being offered at something of a discount.
