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.

777 Eastern Parkway

Two-bedroom in Crown Heights, $2,100/month ($1,050 per person)

Post up in fast-rising ’hood Crown Heights at this brand-new apartment in an elevator building. Along with the usual (but no less welcome) amenities like hardwood floors and plenty of windows, we’re especially excited about the walk-in closet and access to a back garden.

With original exposed brick, arched windows, a cool, modern chandelier and funky marbled kitchen cabinets, this North Brooklyn abode is Instagram-ready (don’t pretend that’s not a selling point). On top of that, it’s located on a quiet block just around the corner from the nabe’s best offerings.

Four words: one block to Central Park. That right there is enough for us to put down a deposit, but if you need more convincing, this surprisingly well-equipped uptown spot comes fully furnished, with everything from furniture to linens to cookware.

Three-bedroom in Midtown, $3,545/month ($1,182 per person)

Yes, it’s possible to nab a brownstone in Midtown. Aside from the convenience, this light and airy pad’s perks include freshly redone hardwood floors, a sleek granite and stainless steel kitchen (that includes a dishwasher) and a ridiculous amount of natural light, if we do say so ourselves.
