Which Chelsea Apartment Would You Spend $2.4 Million On?

New, 12 comments

Imagine you have around $2,400,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments. 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: 428 West 23rd Street #1A 305 West 16th Street #PHE
Price: $2,195,000 $2,385,000
Maintenance: $1,425 $2,091
Beds, Baths: 3, 2.5 2, 2

↑ This ground-floor duplex in 428 West 23rd Street features a self-watering garden, as well as an upper-level terrace and a lower-level patio with a hot tub. So that's pretty great. The wood-burning fireplace in the master bedroom is also a highlight, as is the fact that it's the cheaper of the two apartments.

↑ The 305 West 16th Street apartment, meanwhile, is a corner penthouse. It has floors made of "durable carbonized bamboo," as well as remote controlled blinds, a fancy sound system, a retractable screen and projector, and all kinds of fancy things like that. It was originally listed for $2.75 million in December, so further pricechopping may be in its future.
