New York City is a tough place to find an apartment. People panic about not getting enough for their money, which is why we take a weekly look at what it’s possible to get in this town for about $1,000 a person. (And we promise, there won’t be a nightmare apartment listing.) No one wants to end up in the world’s most depressing apartment, but not everyone has the cash to pay for 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 so 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.

Fresh coats of paint, massive exposed brick walls and enormous windows (with views of real trees!) are just a few of the perks that this newly-renovated pad offers. While you chill your wine in the cooler or luxuriate in a stunning (and remodeled) tub, you can do laundry out of one of your in-unit machines. If you’re feeling peckish, you can grab a bite or a drink at any number of Bed-Stuy spots— that is, if you ever decide to leave.
