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 monthly 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.

203 30th St #P

Two bedroom in Greenwood Heights for $2,075/month ($1,038 per person)

Living near a graveyard might freak some people out, but the beautiful historic Green-Wood Cemetery, with its rolling hills, cultural events and trolley tours is a different beast. Located just a block away from said cemetery, this abode gives you a lovely, no-frills true two bedroom for a price unheard of in neighboring Park Slope. Check out the restaurants closer to Prospect Park and mosey back here on a warm night.

2015 1st Avenue #6B

Two bedroom in East Harlem for $2,200/month ($1,100 per person)

With an almost blindingly bright and pristine kitchen and renovations throughout, this updated East Harlem apartment is perfect for those who care deeply about that clean, sharp look. Though far east on First Avenue, the 103rd cross street means you’re close to cross town busses and the idyllic, less crowded northern portion of Central Park. Another added bonus? There’s just as many bathrooms as there are bedrooms (two), so you can take your time grooming before hitting up the plethora of nearby restaurants and bars.

Madison St #7

Two bedroom in Two Bridges for $2,200/month ($1,100 per person)

A Lower East Side apartment with some old-school charm—exposed brick, dramatic natural lighting and french doors—this place is a steal considering how cool the surrounding area is and it’s convenience to both the F train and downtown Manhattan, especially for residents with a bike. In addition to those high ceilings, whoever snags this place also gets a dishwasher and in-unit washer dryer.

322 Throop Ave #3

Two bedroom in Bedford-Stuyvesant for $2,156/month ($1,028 per person)

Not only is this two bedroom located in one of Brooklyn’s fastest growing neighborhoods, it’s also charming to boot. As a first floor apartment in a townhouse, there’s plenty of classic details like the molding around the windows and the brick fireplace with the modern touches you want, like a fully-updated kitchen, in-unit laundry and virtual doorman service for extra security. Pets are welcome here, so tell Fido the good news.

1254 Union Street

Three bedroom in Crown Heights for $2,999/month ($1,000 per person)

In Crown Heights, a nabe where rent prices have ballooned in recent years, any place that’s going for a grand a person is a steal, especially if it’s been so nicely updated as this pre-war beauty. The spacious pad has plenty of room to spread out—it even has two full bathrooms and half bath. There’s eateries and beer gardens a plenty within a short walk, but if you do want to stay in those beautiful appliances and ample kitchen cabinets should come in handy.
