It's a Battle of Fireplaces in These Brooklyn Heights Co-ops

New, 3 comments

Imagine you have around $700,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments. 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: 146 Columbia Heights #3/ 30 Remsen Street #3B
Price: $695,000 $695,000
Maintenance: $831 $780
Beds, Baths: 1, 1 1, 1

↑ This apartment in 1880s co-op building 146 Columbia Heights is a one-bedroom, but barely. That bedroom might not even be a legal bedroom, and it certainly doesn't have a door, which takes some of the bedroom-ness out of it. The rest of the apartment is very nice, though, particularly the beautiful fireplace and large bathroom.

↑ In 30 Remsen Street, the monthly costs are slightly less, and, more importantly, the apartment comes with a large private terrace. The bedroom is also tiny, though. The kitchen is more open, but without much counter space.
