Kim & Kanye VS. Taylor: Who Has The Better New York City Rental?

Airbnb gave Kimye a place to crash for the fall—but is it better than Taylor Swift's place?

Posted on
Airbnb / Via airbnb.com

By now, you've probably heard that the joint celebrity entity known as Kimye will be hanging around New York City this fall, courtesy of Airbnb. But we're forgetting one major thing: New York is Taylor Swift's turf.

See, Kim Kardashian & Kanye West's luxury penthouse rental is in Tribeca. (Yes, Tribeca. Yes, the listing might tell you Chelsea, but the listing is lying to you. New Yorkers: Peep their view of Pier 40 for proof.)

Wait a minute—Doesn't TSwift have a penthouse in Tribeca?

Yes, she does. Like, literally 5 minutes away from Kimye's.

Ohhhh, wait. It's under renovation, isn't it?

Yes, it is. That's why she's renting a West Village townhouse that happens to be only two minutes farther away from the Kardashian-West fam...

This all begs the question... WHO'S GOT THE BETTER DIGS?

Welp, why don't you take this handy, thoroughly researched quiz to find out? It's based on real estate listings for each place, and it may just answer the Kimye vs. Taylor power battle once and for all.

GO.

  1. Well, duh: Whose place costs more?

    Tie.

    Kimye's pad is on the market for $24.5 million right now. Taylor's, meanwhile, has a Zillow-estimated worth of roughly $22 million... but the property owner was reportedly asking $27 million back in 2013. Split the difference between those two numbers and you get the exact same price tag as Kimye's glass paradise: $24.5mil. It's a tie. It's actually a tie.

  2. Who has more bedrooms?

    Taylor

    Taylor's pad has 5 bedrooms, while the Airbnb page for Kim & Kanye's "5-bedroom" notes that there are really 5 beds, but 4 bedrooms. Sorry, Kimye—pullout couches don't count.

    Kimye's penthouse has 6 bathrooms. Taylor's has 5... and 2 half-baths. Modern math deems this one a tie, folks.

    The Wests have nearly 7,200 sq. ft. of interior space, while Taylor's closet townhouse only stretches past 5,400.

    OUCH. Taylor holds 3 fireplaces over Kimye's apparent zero. Talk about a BURN.

  9. Okay, okay. Sure. But who has access to a pool?

    Both.

    Taylor's is indoors. It's unclear where Kanye's is... but they certainly don't have to go all the way to the local Y.

  10. What about elevators? Whose got one?

    Both.

    Kim & Kanye's building offers a private, key-locked elevator that can shuttle them directly to their pad. Taylor has one, too—more of a rarity in a townhouse. But, hey—a tie's a tie.

    According to real estate listings, Taylor's place has its own "workout facility." Kimye's building prefers to call it a gym.

    Sorry, Swift. If you can't stand the heat... then you shoulda sprung for a place with an outdoor kitchen.

  13. Kitchens and size aside... Who has more options for outdoor lounging?

    Sure, Taylor has 2 stories of patio space out back, and another terrace in the front... but Kim & Kanye have 7 different terraces. And you know what they say: "7 is more than 3."

    You can always warm up in that cozy indoor kitchen, Swifty.

    Taylor.

    Swift has the luxury of her own private garage. Kimye seemingly have none. Feels nice to win one, eh, Tay?

    Don't call it a comeback... Kim & Kanye's penthouse may span 3 floors, but Taylor's place offers 4 stories of indoor space.

    The Wests can see in all directions. Taylor's "partial city view" is cute and all, but wouldn't you rather 360˚ city views and a wide, direct line-of-sight to the Hudson River? Water views FTW!
