    175 Tompkins Ave #3

    Four-bedroom in Bedford-Stuyvesant, $2,750/month ($687 per person)

    If you split this large apartment with three of your closest friends, you could end up paying a mind-blowingly low amount for an apartment that’s just a few blocks from the Myrtle/Willoughby stop. In other words, not only would you be just a short G train ride away from both downtown Brooklyn and Williamsburg, you’d also have enough money to burn in both ‘hoods. That’s a lot of craft beers and PBRs. And just look at those high ceilings and beams! It would be like living in an Olive Garden. In here, you’re always family.

    100 John St #2505

    Three-bedroom in the Financial District for $3,318/month ($1,106 per person)

    It’s safe to say that you don’t often get a chandelier with your breakfast nook at this price point in Manhattan. But you could be eating your eggs like Marie Antoinette at this Financial District stunner. Not fancy enough for you? Well Mariah Carey, for extra measure they threw in another chandelier over the sink! That’s gonna make doing dishes feel a lot classier, huh? Not to mention, when you’re ready to retire to your boudoir, all three bedrooms feature a window and can fit king-sized beds. Quelle beauté!

    E 82nd St

    Three-bedroom in Upper East Side, $3,500/month ($1,166 per person)

    Just think about how much more dramatic your entrances and exits could be if your bedroom had French doors. Let out your inner Auntie Mame at this Upper East Side apartment with three large bedrooms, a renovated kitchen and a video intercom system to help you avoid stranger danger. Speaking of security, this unit is in one of the safest neighborhoods of the city and offers a live-in super. You’ll never have to put up with a broken sink, or a potential robbery, again. Well, hopefully. Either way, the French doors probably lock.

    137 Dupont St #3R

    Two-bedroom in Greenpoint, $2,795/month ($1,397 per person)

    You could spend hours on the private balcony at this Greenpoint two-bedroom dwelling on things like, “How did my life take such a wonderful turn that I now rent an apartment with a dishwasher?” or “Wow, I really hope the G train is running this weekend.” Even though you’ll have to deal with a track lighting situation in the unit’s living room, features like laundry in the building, hardwood floors and a large open kitchen almost make up for it. Almost.

    Skillman Ave

    Two-bedroom in Williamsburg, $2,450/month ($1,225 per person)

    This Williamsburg apartment has got outdoor space for days. Not only does the unit offer a lovely shared courtyard in the back that would be perfect for an afternoon BBQ, but it’s also just a few block from McCarren park. The building also allow pets, which makes it’s a perfect match for any animal lovers out there. Also, just regular lovers. To be honest, its railroad-style layout would be a lot more comfortable as a one-bedroom.
