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.

  • Broadway at W 122nd St

    Three-bedroom in West Harlem, $2,800/month ($933.34 per person)

    Sitting right between Morningside and Riverside Parks, this Columbia University apartment has high ceilings and air-conditioning. It's also under $1,000 a month if you get roommates (or a couple of professionally trained performing dogs with a good agent—your call).

  • Broadway at W 122nd St

    Three-bedroom in West Harlem, $2,800/month ($933.34 per person)

  • Broadway at W 122nd St

  • E 11th St #22

    Three-bedroom in the East Village, $3,900/month ($1,300 per person)

    This three-bedroom apartment in the East Village has little in the way of amenities described, but it does have a very excitable listing ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERS WITH TONS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!! It also includes "MODREN UPDATES YOU CAN'T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF!!!" We have no idea what that means, but it sounds pretty exciting, right?

  • E 11th St #22

    Three-bedroom in the East Village, $3,900/month ($1,300 per person)

  • E 11th St #22

    Three-bedroom in the East Village, $3,900/month ($1,300 per person)

  • W 38th St #534

    Two-bedroom in the Garment District, $3,600/month ($1,800 per person)

    The only luxury apartment building on this week's list, this pad has a doorman, parking, an in-unit washer/dryer, a roof deck, and it even allows pets. You can see how someone might be tempted if they had the cash.

  • W 38th St #534

    Two-bedroom in the Garment District, $3,600/month ($1,800 per person)

  • W 38th St #534

    Two-bedroom in the Garment District, $3,600/month ($1,800 per person)

  • Lexington Ave at 120th St #23B

    Three-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,695/month ($898.34 per person)

    A three-bedroom for under $900 per month, with all utilities included, pets allowed and a decent kitchen. Here’s the real clincher, though: It’s on the 33rd floor. Say hello to some crazy views! (Evidently, the person who was supposed to take a photo of the view had a crippling anxiety attack and couldn’t bring themselves to actually step out onto the balcony.)

  • Lexington Ave at 120th St #23B

    Three-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,695/month ($898.34 per person)

  • Lexington Ave at 120th St #23B

  • 433 E 80th St

    Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $3,595/month ($1,198.34 per person)

    Another three-bedroom, but this time with a washer and dryer inside the apartment. It’s a 12-minute walk to the subway and allows dogs, although cat owners will be disappointed—although, being cat owners, they’ll probably be used to that sensation.

  • 433 E 80th St

    Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $3,595/month ($1,198.34 per person)
