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.)

  • 228 Monitor St #2

    Three-bedroom in Greenpoint, Brooklyn; $3,250/month

    The best bargain of the day for friends looking to share is this 1,000-square-foot three-bedroom in Greenpoint. As well as being completely refurbished with lots of light and a huge living room, it has one thing you rarely find in a three-bed: All the bedrooms are roughly the same size. Goodbye, arguments over who gets the biggest room and whether they should have to pay slightly more rent than everyone else and wait—why should I have to pay more just because I got here first and threw my stuff in.… God, I don’t even know why I wanted to live with you jerks.

  • 524 E 85th St

    Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,400/month

    Big closets, refinished hardwood floors and a rent of $1,200 per month all make this 750-square-foot pad a pretty appealing prospect. Dogs are allowed, but weirdly, there is a strict “no cats” policy in place. Suck it, cat people!

  • E 11th St

    Two-bedroom in the East Village, $3,895/month

    This is a new development with a 24/7 doorman, laundry room and elevator. It’s also a massive, sun-filled two-bedroom in the East Village, so that might possibly appeal to some people as well, perhaps.

  • 10 Hanover Sq #310

    Three-bedroom in the Financial District, $3,995/month

    A little pricier than our other three-bed this week, but still not bad, especially considering the building’s amenities, which include a gym with a sauna, high-speed Internet, on-site laundry, a roof terrace and even a freaking climbing wall.

  • 45 Tudor City Pl #1816

    Studio in Midtown East, $2,000/month

    The most expensive pad on this week’s list is also a studio, which seems weird, but it’s in a building with a 24-hour doorman and laundry, as well as a roof deck with river views. Best of all, just look at that lobby! If there’s a better place to watch Game of Thrones on your laptop in this city, we’ve yet to see it.
