Vote for the Multi-Family Clinton Hill Townhouse You'd Buy

Imagine you have around $1,750,000 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.

Address: 232 Greene Avenue/ 152 Washington Avenue
Price: $1,700,000 $1,750,000
Square Footage: 2,144 n/a
Beds, Baths: 6, 4 7, 3.5
Width: 17' 20'

? These two houses are basically the same price and, as far as we can tell, roughly the same size — each is four stories, 232 Greene Avenue is a little deeper, and 152 Washington Avenue is a little wider. They also both have backyards. 232 Greene, however, is separated into two duplexes while its counterpart is one owner's duplex and two 2BR rental units. 232 Greene also has bay windows and some more...interesting decor.

? 152 Washington Avenue is the more conventional-looking of the two, which means that it probably needs less work. It does have original details, but they're the original details that every place has — decorative mantle, crown molding, etc.
