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.

W 37th St #14D

Three-bedroom apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, $3,700/month ($1,233 per person)

While it’s not cheap cheap, per se, this midtown pad offers a ton of bang for your buck, and by bang we mean so many amenities it’s ridiculous. For starters, the layout appears to be fairly spacious (breakfast counter, yes please!). Plus there are two full bathrooms and an in-unit washer and dryer. But the icing on the cake is that the building has a fitness center, concierge, bike storage and “rooftop sun and yoga decks," per Zumper.
