99 Battery Pl #2711

Three-bedroom in Battery Park City, $3,272/month ($1,091 per person)

Packed into a 4 train stuck in Midtown, it's easy to forget that NYC is an island surrounded by open masses of water. At this roomy lower Manhattan 27th-floor apartment, though, you can gaze out your window—or from your rooftop patio—to the grand expanse. And if you find yourself jealous of the carefree tourists parading the area, fear not: A doorman, concierge, gym and valet service will put you in permanent spoiled vacation mode.

W 113th St

Three-bedroom in Central Harlem, $3,250/month ($1,083 per person)

No, that antique-looking furniture set is not included; but suffice it to say Harlem isn't what it once was (I'm looking at you, "exposed brick"). This newly-renovated apartment is ideally situated between Columbia University and Central Park, granting you the perfect opportunity to pursue that masters you're always talking about, or maybe just that perfect Great Lawn suntan.

164 Throop Ave #1R

Three-bedroom in the Bed-Stuy for $2,895/month ($965 per person)

Situated in proximity to some of Brooklyn's most sought after frontier locales for the young and hip, this three-bedroom apartment will have you exploring  new spots without quite living in the thick of it. And if staying in is more your style, get to know your neighbors on the shared rooftop or laundry room. And if you truly hate everyone, hole up in your room; with three bedrooms on two levels and two bathrooms, you could probably see no one but your Seamless delivery man ever again.
