New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. Everyone panics that they aren’t getting enough for their money, so we’re taking a weekly look at what you can get in this town for between $1,000 and $2,000 per month, per person. No one wants to end up in the world’s most depressing apartment (and equally, not everyone has the cash to get the kind of place Obama could afford to rent if he moves to New York), so take a look at these attractive, spacious places—but do it quickly, because these will be gone before you know it. Come back next week for more of our top picks from real-estate site Zumper’s inventory.

    8 Centre Market Pl #5

    Two-bedroom in Little Italy, $3,600/month

    We’re starting with a somewhat pricey one this week, at $1,800 per person, but look at it! An airy, open apartment with oak floors and brand-new appliances, and it’s right in Little Italy! There are no pets allowed, though, so maybe it’s time to question just how much you really love that guinea pig.

    Union Ave

    Two-bedroom in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; $2,700/month

    This pad has both a newly renovated rooftop deck and a washer and a dryer. It comes in at $1,350 per person per month, which is actually pretty reasonable (you know, by New York standards, which are, admittedly, completely goddamn insane).

    Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $3,100/month

    It looks a little old-fashioned at first glance, but you could probably turn this place into something pretty special. Unusually for a New York apartment, it’s got a decent-size kitchen—some thoughtful person even installed an air-conditioning unit facing the oven so you don’t melt trying to cook dinner in summer. Thanks, thoughtful person!

    Park Ave at 53rd St

    Two-bedroom in Midtown East, $3,495/month

    It’s very, uh…brown. But it’s got laundry in the building, it allows pets, and you can tell people that you’re super fancy because you live on Park Avenue. And the person who wrote the listing ended every single line with an exclamation point, so, y’know, it must be good.

    365 W 20th St #5C

    Two-bedroom in Chelsea, $3,995/month

    The most expensive of this week’s picks—just a couple dollars shy of our upper limit of $2,000 per person—makes the list by being attractively laid out and having two bedrooms the same size (there’s nothing worse than losing that “who gets the big room?” argument). The listing also touts its “cleverly designed shower rail,” and come on, who could resist that??
