New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. People panic about not getting enough for their money, which is why we take a weekly look at what you can get in this town for around $1,000 per person (and we promise, there’ll be no nightmare apartment listing). 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 affordable apartments in NYC—but do it quickly, because they 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 still struggling, try our NYC apartments guide.

1059 Union St #3F

Four-bedroom in Crown Heights, $4,000/month ($1,000 per person)

We’re not sure what to talk about first when it comes to this Crown Heights stunner: the one-block proximity to Prospect Park, the sprawling layout with two bathrooms, the in-unit washer and dryer or the shiny stainless-steel kitchen featuring a built-in wine fridge.

124 Seigel St

Four-bedroom in Williamsburg, $3,195/month ($799 per person)

Your eyes do not deceive you: That price is for four bedrooms, not three. Which means three-digit rents in the 'Burg aren’t just an urban legend! If that isn't enough (it should be), the space boasts a renovated kitchen, a soon-to-be-installed washer/dryer, and a shared outdoor patio.

122 Norfolk St #16

Three-bedroom on the Lower East Side, $3,350/month ($1,117 per person)

If convenience to bars tops your neighborhood priority list—and peace and quiet not so much—welcome to your dream apartment. It’s about as close to the hub of LES nightlife as you can get without actually living in a bar, and at a pretty great rate to boot. Bonuses: plenty of natural light and an updated kitchen and bath.

14th St #3B

Two-bedroom in Park Slope, $2,416/month ($1,208 per person)

Park Slope might be known for strollers, but that’s just because it’s such a nice place for, well, strolling (kids or not). This sunny prewar abode features good closet space, a brand-new kitchen (is that a dishwasher we spy?) and a dog-friendly policy (because if you’re one of the Park Slopers without a kid, there’s a good chance you have a dog).

West 105th Street #3a

Two-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $2,400/month ($1,200 per person)

Joggers and picnickers should head uptown for this West Side pad, which puts you a stone’s throw from not one but three parks: Central, Morningside and Riverside. It also has a spacious, if vaguely retro-fabulous, kitchen with loads of cabinet space, hardwood floors and plenty of sunlight.
