New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as everybody knows. It’s easy to panic that you’re not getting enough for your 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.

And if you’re curious, here’s what was available last week.

  • 205 W 103rd St #4D

    Three-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $3,900/month ($1,300 per person)

    If you’ve got a thing for bright orange walls and white fluffy furnishings, have we got an apartment for you! This pretty reasonably-priced three-bedroom sits right by the 1 train at 103rd St, and as well as having two bathrooms, you have the option to take it furnished, as shown in the above photos. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but at least you won’t have to make another Goddamn trip to IKEA.

  • 205 W 103rd St #4D

  • Lexington Ave #AG80

    Two-bedroom in Kips Bay, $3,000/month ($1,500 per person)

    Housed in a building with a doorman, on-site laundry and a gym, this place has walk-in closets, a balcony and hardwood floors. Considering how tiny Kips Bay is, you should be walking distance to either the 23rd St or 28th St 6 train stops. And if you really like living near hospitals, man, are you going to love this neighborhood.

  • Lexington Ave #AG80

    Two-bedroom in Kips Bay, $3,000/month ($1,500 per person)

  • Lexington Ave #AG80

    Two-bedroom in Kips Bay, $3,000/month ($1,500 per person)

  • W 50th St #4D

    Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $2,600/month ($1,300 per person)

    There’s very little info on this listing besides the photos and the fact that cats and dogs are not welcome, but fans of the grittier side of NY history will be pleased to know it sits just a couple blocks away from De Witt Clinton Park.

  • W 50th St #4D

    Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $2,600/month ($1,300 per person)

  • W 50th St #4D

    Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $2,600/month ($1,300 per person)

  • E 71st St #4W

    Three-bedroom on the Upper East side, $3,495/month ($1,165 per person)

    One of the best deals we’ve seen on a three-bedroom in a while, this pad has a small but brand new kitchen, and the long hallway seems like it would give a sense of space and privacy for roommates. The listing also boasts that it’s near to Starbucks, which puts it on a par with pretty much every single man-made structure west of Siberia.

  • E 71st St #4W

    Three-bedroom on the Upper East side, $3,495/month ($1,165 per person)

  • E 71st St #4W

    Three-bedroom on the Upper East side, $3,495/month ($1,165 per person)

  • 238 E 82nd St #1C

    Two-bedroom on the Upper East side, $4,000/month ($2,000 per person)

    The most expensive place on this week’s list has a decent sized kitchen and outdoor space, so as NY apartments go, it’s actually quite a find, especially considering there are two bathrooms, one on each floor. That said, we’re really just including it because we’re a sucker for winding spiral staircases (right up until the moment you’re trying to get a queen-sized bed up the bastards, anyway).

  • 238 E 82nd St #1C

    Two-bedroom on the Upper East side, $4,000/month ($2,000 per person)

  • 238 E 82nd St #1C
