The Facts: Two-bedroom, 1,260-square-foot condo.

Monthly Charges: $1,263.
Agents: Elaine Schweninger and Rudolf Hanja, Prudential Douglas Elliman.
|These Tribeca condos are practically equal in size, with high ceilings. Both are in high-profile, amenity-laden buildings.||Though there's certainly space for a second bedroom and bath at 101 Warren, it's configured as an expansive one-bedroom fit for entertainingbut not as family-friendly.|
23 E. 22nd St.
· $4.15 million
The Facts: Two-bedroom, 1,560-square-foot condo.
Monthly Charges: $1,175.
Agents: Wendy Maitland/Wilbur Gonzalez/Susan Green, Brown Harris Stevens.

Monthly Charges: $2,428.
Agents: Claudie Harari/Nan Shipley, Rand Realty.
|Both face Madison Square Park and have outdoor spaces, too. Plus their square- footage is near-identical.||The giant new tower at 23 East 22nd, a.k.a. One Madison Park, will share its lobby and outsize list of amenities with the delightfully weird new tower by Rem Koolhaas; No. 5 is a better-than-average eighties tower sans name brand.|
20 Henry St. · $580,000
The Facts: 530-square-foot studio condo.
Agent: Vince Rocco, Halstead Property Development Marketing.
111 Hicks St. · $319,000
The Facts: 500-square-foot studio co-op.
Agent: Zelda Josephs, Zelda Josephs Real Estate.
|The straightforward layouts, the generous for studios, anyway square-footage. And they're both in interesting conversions: 111 Hicks was once the storied Hotel St. George, Brooklyn's best hostelry, and 20 Henry used to house the Peaks Mason Mints factory.||Twenty Henry Street is a brand-new condo with all the trimmings (fitness-center, bike room), plus a fifteen-year tax abatement; the Hicks Street apartment is in a co-op.|
310 W. 52nd St., 29B
· $2.395 million
The Facts: Three-bedroom, 1,331-square-foot condo.
Monthly Charges: $1,150.

Monthly Charges: $1,151.
Agents: Kathy McFarland/Curtis Rhine, Corcoran
|Same line, same building, same views, same square-footage.||Apartment 29B has been reconstructed to have a better flow of rooms and a proper third bedroom, and it's finishes are quite a bit nicer. Yes, renovating the cheaper apartment to match will be a headachebut the $500,000 difference will buy a lot of Sheetrock and cherrywood.|
