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.

36-5 Vernon Blvd #1L

Three-bedroom in Long Island City, $2,750/month ($917 per person)

We'd happily post up at this freshly renovated prewar abode in LIC, with its adorable white-tiled kitchen (with a dishwasher!), hardwood floors, track lighting and high ceilings. And we're not mad at the location, either: You're just a stroll away from the likes of Gantry Plaza State Park, MoMA PS1 and LIC Flea & Food.

201 W 107th St #4

Four-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $4,500/month ($1,125 per person)

Hello, sunshine! This UWS corner unit in an elevator building gets more than enough of it (seriously, you might need to keep your sunglasses on), but we're not complaining. It also boasts hardwood floors, charming details and is that a dishwasher I spy? We'd be willing to invest in some heavy-duty blinds for all that.

First Ave

Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $3,400/month ($1,133 per person)

Okay, the description for this listing is pretty bare-bones ("windows and closets in all rooms"…uh, thanks), but we'll let that slide because it does look pretty nice. We're especially into the exposed brick and the probably-not-functional-but-still-cute fireplace.

515 W 122nd St #31

Three bedroom in Morningside Heights, $2,995/month ($998 per person)

So fresh and so clean. If you're a fan of all-white décor, this is the place for you: The kitchen would make the perfect backdrop to your next Instagrammable cooking project. And the immaculately polished hardwood floors ain't too bad either.

51 Morgan Ave #3R

Two-bedroom in Bushwick, $2,200/month ($1,100 per person)

The ever-changing area between Williamsburg and Bushwick probably has a name by now (Williamswick? Bushburg?), but regardless, it's a pretty coveted place to roost, making this spot practically a steal. The dishwasher and hardwood floors are a nice touch, but more to the point: It's a mere one block away from Roberta's.
