Imagine you have around $1,300,000 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.

↑ Both of these Roosevelt Island apartments are rather zealously decorated, but looking past that, 415 Main Street is the smaller of the two, and a condo. It looks very bright and sunny, is located in a building with lots of amenities, and comes with a private deeded corner rooftop terrace.
↑ 531 Main Street, a full-service co-op building, offers this three-bedroom, which is larger, but with higher monthly costs. It's recent history may speak to its desirability, or lack thereof — it was listed in May for $1.625 million and has since seen its price chopped three times.
