New York City is a tough place to find an apartment, as we all know. People panic about not 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 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.

334 Myrtle Ave #2A

Four-bedroom in Fort Greene, $3,995/month ($999 per person)

Grab your three best pals and set up in this cozy Fort Greene abode. On top of being outfitted with tons of exposed brick and cute-but-probably-faux fireplaces, it has high ceilings, loads of natural light, a brand-new kitchen with a dishwasher, and heat and hot water included. Hey, for all that, we’d live with three frenemies.

230 Troutman St #1C

Four-bedroom in Bushwick, $4,000/month ($1,000 per person)

For a second we thought those photos were renderings, this place is so clean and open. Your eyes do not deceive you: It gets that much sunlight, and the floors are that shiny. Plus, it’s three blocks to the Jefferson L stop and boasts a shared roof deck and backyard.

339 W 51st St

Four-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $4,795/month ($1,199 per person)

Okay, while it’s not exactly a steal, this bi-level West Side flat comes with a lot of amenities. There’s an in-unit washer and dryer, central AC, a whirlpool bathtub, two walk-in closets, a private lobby entrance and a private outdoor space. Not bad for under $1,200 a pop.

E 95th St #3

Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $3,500/month ($1,167 per person)

We’d gladly live in an uptown world if it meant living in this spacious, renovated spot. Along with whitewashed brick, high ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors and a dishwasher, it’s just a hop and a skip from the 92nd Street Y, the Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum and Central Park.

Ditmars Blvd at 27th St

Two-bedroom in Astoria, $2,000/month ($1,000 per person)

This Astoria dwelling holds its own (hardwood floors, plenty of closet space, a balcony, and heat and hot water included), but where it really shines is the location: You’re pretty much smack dab in the middle of the nabe’s best features, including Astoria Park, Bohemian Hall and Taverna Kyclades.
