Imagine you have around $1,000,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two co-ops in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

14 Horatio Street has the slight advantage in terms of size and price, coming out to $1,118 per square foot to 88 Charles Street's $1,265 per square foot. 88 Charles has approximately 33% lower monthly maintenance costs, however, as well as an extra bathroom. It also has a spiral staircase leading to the bedroom, which definitely looks great in pictures but might be kind of a nuisance in real life. 14 Horatio's main quirk is the seldom-seen granite flooring throughout, which, like the stairs, definitely looks cool (well, different) in photos, but probably makes the apartment a little chilly in the wintertime.
