Would you choose the Upper West Side or Soho?
Imagine you have around $23,000/month 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.

↑ A corner apartment in Upper West Side legend The Apthorp is seeking $24,000/month. The apartment appears to have been recently refurbished—that kitchen!—and offers up classic-cool finishes like herringbone floors and crystal chandeliers. As is common with older apartments, there’s no short supply of wood-burning fireplaces in the apartment. This one boasts three of ‘em.
↑ A spacious penthouse in the heart of Soho on Spring Street between West Broadway and Wooster streets that, according to its listings, is a “former private residence of an American Legend” is on the market for $22,000/month. Where The Apthorp apartment is very Upper West Side, this pad is distinctly downtown with soaring ceilings, clean lines, and a bedroom that look onto a double-height living area. But don’t worry, that’s not the master; the master, of course, has great vistas onto the surrounding neighborhood. This one also has a deck.
