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.

  • 28 Sickles St

    One-bedroom in Washington Heights, $1,350/month

    On-site laundry, a dishwasher and a big old bedroom with exposed brick combine with a hardwood floor to make this place a pretty attractive proposition. Lovers of downtown might feel a little removed from the action, but the proximity to the 1 train should ease the pain somewhat.

  • 93 Seigel St #3B

    Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; $3,800/month

    For $1,200 per month each, this apartment is as close as you’re going to get to a steal in Williamsburg these days. Newly renovated kitchen, hardwood floors, good-size bedrooms—hipsters will almost forget to be disaffected and unimpressed with everything as soon as they step inside.

  • 423 E 81st St

    One-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $1,900/month

    If you have a little more disposable income and don’t mind living a 15-minute walk from the nearest subway, this cozy pad might be for you. It has a fireplace, high ceilings and a decent outdoor space. No guarantee it comes with that little stag head, though.

  • W 37th St #18

    Two-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $3,150/month

    For less than two grand a month per roommate, you and your friend can share this place in Hell’s Kitchen that comes with a doorman, gym, roof deck, on-site laundry and bike storage. There’s a ton of natural light, which will be useful for getting a really good look at your guests’ jealous expressions.

  • 48-15 11th St #11D

    Two-bedroom in Long Island City, Queens; $4,000/month

    The priciest pad on our list would see both roommates paying $2,000 a month each, but just look at the space! You also get two bathrooms, a doorman, granite countertops and large windows throughout, plus a gym, a bike room and a friendly attitude toward tenants with pets. Excuse us while we go beg for a raise.
