Imagine you have around $1,900,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments 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.

? This condo duplex in 14 East 4th Street (The Silk Building) is both smaller and more expensive than its counterpart, but it's also a lot newer-looking, with nicer finishes and built-ins, including a wood-burning fireplace and surround built in sound in the living room. There's also the additional bathroom.
? Both of these apartments, it bears worth mentioning, are on the same street as the historic Merchant's House Museum, next to which will soon be a construction site, and 32 East 4th Street, a co-op, is the slightly closer of the two. But there are other factors to consider—the kitchen, for instance, is a lot bigger, and there's a 450-square-foot private deck. Also, as mentioned before, it is both larger and less expensive. The lower level, while spacious and high-ceilinged, looks somewhat basement-y.
