Imagine you have around $800,000 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.

? Pay no attention to man behind the plant in this penthouse unit at 117 Kingsland Avenue in Greenpoint. It's the smaller and cheaper of the two units, but also includes over 700 square feet of outdoor space spread out over a large roof terrace, a small roof terrace, and a balcony. Extremely low common charges and a tax abatement until 2025 combine for minuscule monthly costs.
? On the other side of the BQE, at 306 Leonard Street in Williamsburg, this duplex condo offers more than 500 square feet of interior space, but less than half the outdoor space. It has a tax abatement until 2032, but higher common charges.
