Junior Whopper: 725 President Street

Let's imagine you were hungry, and you only had $1.75 to spend. Oh... and you were at Burger King. Would you buy the Whopper or the Whopper Junior? Our guess is the Whopper. More bang for your buck, right?

Now - why would anyone behave differently if we raised the stakes by a million? Why don't you ask the folks down at Brownstone Real Estate who listed the 12.5' wide 725 President Street for $1.783M? It supposedly has high ceilings, which might actually manage to be taller than the building is wide.

We would spend a little time ragging on the awkward angle of the dated kitchen shot with the doorway in the foreground...

Or how, "The upper triplex boasts... a 2-seat hot tub with a skylight" that looks more like a sink in this picture...

But just do yourself a favor and go by the cheaper, larger, better Original Whopper, 710 President Street, if you're even considering 725 at any price.

Pro's: original details, high ceilings, location, turns out the hot tub isn't a sink

Con's: 12.5' wide, 2,400 sqft, nothing grabs us inside, wayyyy better ways to spend this money

Ideally: do not pass go, do not collect $200, go straight to 710 President Street
