    Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, $3,494/month ($1,165 per person)

    This Williamsburg whopper offers the one-two punch of both a dishwasher and a washer and dryer. Literally all of your washing needs could be taken care of without ever having to step outside. On top of that, the three-bedroom has a great central location just a few blocks south of Metropolitan and north of the Williamsburg Bridge. For bikers, that means you’d be just minutes from Manhattan. For everyone else, that means you could live in Williamsburg without being solely dependent on the L train. Dreams come true.

    Three-bedroom in the Garment District for $3,500/month ($1,167 per person)

    If you work in Midtown, you could do a lot worse than this modern three-bedroom located in a building that’s packed with plenty of amenities. The luxury high-rise offers a roof deck with free wi-fi, a state-of-the-art gym, dry cleaning and a newly renovated lobby. You’ll also be just steps from the highest concentration of karaoke bars in the city in case sharing one bathroom between three roommates becomes a little too much to handle. Nothing eases the pain like a little Bonnie Raitt and a bottle of Sapporo.

    Three-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,200/month ($733 per person)

    Ever dream of getting your hands dirty outdoors? You could pull a Michelle Obama and start your own private herb garden in the backyard of this apartment building. It’s that massive. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s surrounded by a lovely wooden fence that will make you feel like you're living in the suburbs. The interior offers a lot of quaint details that you’d only find in a pre-war townhouse above 110th St. If recessed alcoves, crown molding and decorative fireplaces are your thing, then you've hit the Upper Manhattan jackpot.

    Two-bedroom in Greenwich Village, $3,000/month ($1,500 per person)

    The kitchen in this apartment seems to have been constructed with the primary purpose of providing a small elderly woman somewhere to make pies while listening to her stories. Luckily, this oversized two-bedroom offers plenty of other places to escape the quaint cooking area if you’re in a less-than-twee mood. Both bedrooms boast adequate space, and the large private outdoor area is a true find for the neighborhood. You could throw some great parties out there. And bring your own pies.

    2nd Ave & East 73rd St

    Two-bedroom in the Upper East Side, $2,295/month ($1,147 per person)

    This two-bedroom apartment is smack dab in the middle of the Upper East Side, just a short walk from the 6 Train at Lexington Avenue. It offers a dishwasher, a renovated bathroom and a wall of exposed brick that will really help you live out that secret Breakfast At Tiffany’s fantasy. And if you tire of singing Moon River on your fire escape, you can mount a concert in the unit’s private backyard.
