The September Factor

Same Space, Different Place
It’s What’s Outside That Counts

These apartments on the same floor of a boutique condo in Harlem share high-end finishes—Bosch appliances, Kohler fixtures—usually available only in more-expensive projects downtown. They’re also nearly the same size, give or take 50 square feet. Apartment 2C, however, will cost its buyer $50,000 more than 2A. Sure, it has floor-to-ceiling windows that let in more light than the typical ones installed next door. But the biggest reason for the price difference may be what is glimpsed through them: While 2A looks onto pretty gardens, 2C has a view of landmarked Strivers Row. In historic Harlem, that’s one amenity that you can’t obtain no matter how much renovating you do.
