Both of these New York City apartments are multimillion dollar listings. The price range - anywhere from between $15 million dollars and $20 million. Hmmm...out of my budget definitely!

So a few questions for you...which one do you think is more expensive? And, which one would you take if offered to you (for free)?

Please do weigh in?  Which apartment is priced higher?


P.S.  I recognize there are larger issues in the world to solve.  Figuring out which multimillion dollar apartment is most expensive is not the most thought provoking question to ask...but I figured it might at least entertain a bit.

P.P.S.  TE and I went to my mom's house this weekend and then went to a nice lunch with her. He brought mom these lovelies...

White hydrangea mixed with purple accents - a bouquet of fresh cut flowers for my mom from TE - so sweet. (above)

P.P.P.S.  So excited...good friend AOB and her hubby DB are going to be in town this weekend.  AOB and I went to college together.  During college, for some reason we started a comedic newsletter called "The Rabid Squirrel"(named after the squirrels on our college campus that were constantly pelting students with nuts and berries) was so weird that we would decide out of the blue to try our hand at satirical writing.  I think we only did it for a year or two...but it was fun.  AOB is one of my dearest friends...I rarely get to see her because she lives in Vermont.  So I  can't wait!

P.P.P.P.S.  Uh oh...running a little behind today.  Must run.  Off to work.  Another week begins!


  1. I'm thinking apartment #2 is more expensive due to location. But I'm loving to live in apartment #1. No contest.

  2. I'd say Apartment #1 due to all the skylighting-- though it may just be because it's my personal choice between the two!!

  3. I'm going to guess that the UES is more expensive than I think #2 is more expensive.

    P.S. We're not here to solve the world's problems so don't worry. We like looking at all the pretties that you post :)

    Have a great week Coco!

  4. #2 is probably the most expansive with its location by Central park and its 36 closets!!!
    #1 to my opinion is priceless! The Dream loft! Airy and bright, open space. Everything white! Roof top garden. Just gorgeous!

  5. My guess is #1 - Tribeca is the neighborhood so many people want to live in now. Loved that apartment, the windows and the outdoor space are incredible.

  6. # 2 is likely more expensive, but #1 knocks one's socks off!

  7. I'm with everyone else. Love No. 1 but No. 2 is probably the pricier. Do we win a prize for guessing right?
    The world has plenty of problems I/you/we can't solve. Always happy for a little diversion.

  8. This was my first visit to your blog but it certainly won't be my last. I'm an interior designer specializing in Reception Desks and projects for the office. I'm looking to branch more into custom homes and really appreciate the info an inspiration.

  9. I sure hope #1 is cheaper...I might can afford it in my next life...LOL
    The outdoor space is to die for.

  10. #2 because it looks bigger and is in NYC - I'd take it in a heart beat... #firstworldproblems :D

  11. So depends on location. I bet number 1 is more expensive because of outdoor space, upgrades and Tribeca is generally a more desirable location that UES today. But, again so dependent on the buildings, amenities and addresses (i.e., is it 5th Avenues in the 60s or in the 90s?)

  12. Absolutely # 2, though #1 is stunning with beautiful outdoor garden space, for me the choice is #2, it looks so cozy and welcoming….
