Which posh NYC co-op would you rather spend $1.4M on?

Would you go for Brooklyn Heights or Greenwich Village?


Imagine you have around $1.8 million to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments: one in Greenwich Village and the other in Brooklyn Heights. 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.

↓A gut renovated Greenwich Village two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is on the market for $1.795 million. Located in the prewar building at 111 West 11th Street, this home is located in Manhattan and offers lots of sunlight and space. Its details include an open floorplan with high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, dark wood floors, and a modern chef’s kitchen. Both bedrooms are en-suite which is nice, but could be odd for guests who have to go through a bedroom to access either of the co-op’s two bathrooms. [Floorplan]


↓In Brooklyn Heights, a lovely two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op at 20 Pierrepont Street is asking $1.1 million. The elegant apartment is filled with details and its generous amount of built-in shelving is a huge perk in a storage-starved city. Despite facing another building, the windows allow in a fair amount of natural light and the detailed wall moldings and arched entryways add a nice touch of early 20th-century charm. There is a modern galley kitchen, a revamped bathroom, and a washer/dryer unit. It’s not Manhattan, but it is almost $700,000 cheaper. [Floorplan]
