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.

Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, $3,328/month ($1,109 per person)

This Williamsburg apartment has a great location with modern appliances and lots of character. The only drawback? All three-bedrooms look like they’re basically on top of each other. If none of your roommates are into EDM or tap dancing, then you should be fine. If you’re looking for an apartment with a chorus girl from On The Town, you may want to keep looking.

Three-bedroom in Two Bridges, Manhattan $3,500/month ($1,167 per person)

Imaginary Manhattan neighborhood “Two Bridges” may be pretty desolate overall, but this light and airy apartment is located just a block from the F train. That’s a pretty short commute if you want to go anywhere else on the Lower East Side. Staying home wouldn’t be too bad either with this unit’s open layout and impressive amount of common space. On top of that, you’ll get “windows in every room!” What is this, a New York apartment or a terrarium?

Three-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $3,700/month ($1,233 per person)

If you lived in this Upper East Side three-bedroom, you’d have access to your very own private backyard patio. On top of being just a few blocks from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the best part of Central Park, that’s a lot of perks for an apartment at under $1,250 a person. For the price of living in Williamsburg, you could be having fancy, Upper East Side garden parties on the regular. Just think about it. This was gonna be your year, remember?

Four-bedroom in West Harlem, $2,750/month ($687 per person)

You might want to a bring a map with you to this apartment because you’re probably gonna get lost in one of it’s incredible FOUR bedrooms. Sure, the listing doesn’t show every bedroom and 1-3 of them could just be an aerobed-lined cabinet drawer, but a girl can dream. Also, what’s that hidden inside those small wooden doors? Oh, just your personal washer and dryer. Boom! If you go to Columbia University, this is basically your dream apartment. Actually, if you go anywhere it might be.

Three-bedroom in Midtown East, $3,500/month ($1,167 per person)

Imagine a world where the “kitchen” in your apartment didn’t consist of a small sink in the corner of your living room or a small fridge blocking your front door, but an entire separate room of your apartment! That world is now a reality with this Midtown East apartment featuring an impressive gourmet kitchen. You’ll also be just a short walk from Rockefeller Center, Central Park and basically every New York City subway line. The world is your oyster! Your oyster that you can take home and eat in your gourmet kitchen!
