New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. Everyone panics that they aren’t getting enough for their money, which is why we’re taking 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 attractive, spacious places—but do it quickly, because these 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.

Affordable apartments April 14, Greenpoint 1

245 Kingsland Ave #3R

Three-bedroom in Greenpoint, $3,595/month ($1,198 per person)

Two full bathrooms, multiple skylights and stainless-steel appliances (among them the much coveted and rarely seen dishwasher) add to this sunny space's appeal, as does its location around the corner from McGlorick Park. The closest train (the G at Nassau) is a bit of a trek, but worth it for these digs.

Mulberry St

Two-bedroom in Little Italy, $2,700/month ($1,350 per person)

This is probably where you imagined yourself living before you moved here: in a bustling downtown neighborhood where both pizza and Peking duck are available 24/7. Your moment has arrived with this apartment, which was recently upgraded to include modern kitchen appliances, gleaming hardwood floors and a brand new bathroom.

Affordable apartments April 14, Harlem 1

W 138th St #3L

Four-bedroom in Harlem, $3,500/month ($875 per person)

We don't know how a place with stunning exposed brick, wood-beamed ceilings and marble bathrooms (two of 'em!) could be under $1K a person, but we're here for it. Talk about moving on up.

Affordable apartments April 14, Flatbush 1

2103 Foster Ave

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

Natural light floods the living area of this gut-renovated, pre-war home, and the living room is actually large enough to host guests. Additional perks include being nearby to open-air market Newkirk Plaza, and one subway stop (or 15min stroll) from restaurants like Mimi's Hummus and The Farm on Adderley.

Affordable apartments April 14, East Harlem 1

314 E 106th St

Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,995/month ($998 per person)

Do you remember how to work a washer and dryer that doesn't require coins or a card to operate (and isn't filled with strangers' lint)? You'll be able to revive the skill at this spot, where a dishwasher is among stainless steel appliances and the living area boasts a cool spiral staircase. It doesn't look like the place gets tons of light, but that's okay: the staircase leads to a private terrace. Score.
