Imagine you have around $650,000 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: 63 Cranberry Street #4/ 75 Henry Street #30L
Price: $650,000 $625,000
Maintenance: $995 $839
Square Footage: n/a 750
Beds, Baths: 2 (sort of), 1 1, 1

↑ This walkup is on the third floor, which also happens to be the top floor, of 63 Cranberry Street, an 1830 brownstone building. This gives it the benefit of having skylights in the living room and master bedroom, and the disadvantage of low ceilings. The renovated unit also includes exposed brick walls, two wood-burning fireplaces, and a second bedroom that, at six feet wide and 88.5 square feet total, cannot actually be considered a legal bedroom. It does have a window, though.

↑ This 1BR in 75 Henry Street is much more conventional, with normal sized ceilings, living room, bedroom, etc. It does feature a small terrace with nice river views, as well as slightly lower monthly costs.
