Luxury Listings NYCMarch 16, 2016

Everyone’s favorite alcohol-soaked holiday – St. Patrick’s Day – is tomorrow! To celebrate CityRealty has put together a very useful/depressing infographic pitting Ireland against New York City, to show us just how much further money goes in basically anywhere but NYC.


For example $7.2 million in the city could bag you the very respectable #PH1B at 205 East 85th Street. The four bedroom, four bathroom duplex has two terraces and 2,433 square feet of internal space.


But in comparison, take your pennies to Ireland, and the same amount could get you the 700-year old Glin Castle, which comes with 21 bedrooms, 20,000 square feet and a 380-acre estate.


Likewise, $11.6 million (slightly less in fact) could get you a penthouse at the very pretty 456 West 19th Street, which has 2,800 square feet of indoor space, 1,200 square feet of outdoor space, three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and a lot of very lovely windows.


But over the Atlantic $11.6 million will get you the ocean-front, Victorian, Inniscorrig Castle. Spread over 5,773 square feet, it has six bedrooms, a boathouse, and views to die for. Take a look at the infographic below.
