Which Fancy East Village Apartment Would You Buy for $3M?

New, 13 comments

Imagine you have around $3,000,000 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: 125 East 12th Street #1F/ 59 Fourth Avenue #2A
Price: $2,950,000 $2,750,000
Monthly Costs: $3,069 $2,619
Square Footage: 2,228 1,900
Beds, Baths: 3, 2.5 2, 2

↑ This unit in condo building 125 East 12th Street is a triplex with two full levels as well as a private garden. It also includes a powder room off the foyer, a wood-burning fireplace, and more closets than you could possibly need.

↑ This 59 Fourth Avenue apartment, a prewar co-op, is slightly smaller, slightly cheaper, and waaaay whiter. It features whitewashed exposed brick (a lot of it), white-painted barrel-vaulted ceilings, and bleached white maple floors. It looks very nice, although it must get tiring to have to worry about spilling things all the time.
