Photograph: Courtesy Zumper10 Clermont Avenue #1L Two-bedroom in Fort Greene, $2,427/month ($1,213 per person) Whether or not you have a thing for sailors, there’s no doubt that living across from the Brooklyn Navy Yard is a prime location. Not only does it boast awesome views of Manhattan and the East River, but you’re just two blocks from Fort Greene Park and its playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts and picnic areas. During the colder months, you can hit up the wealth of cultural offerings (BAM, BRIC, Pratt Institute) and restaurants in the area. In fact, the listing helpfully suggests you “catch an indie rock concert at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple” or “meet your friends for mimosas and bistro-style brunch at Chez Oskar.” Hopefully the agent doesn’t charge a broker’s fee for great date night recommendations!

William St & Wall St Two-bedroom in the Financial District for $2,945/month ($1,472 per person) Damn apartment, you're looking mighty fine. This financial district stunner could make yournext night in watching Netflix feel like a private dinner for two at the Rainbow Room. Even without the Phantom of the Opera-esque candelabra motif they’ve got going on in these pics, you could definitely feel like a baller for under $1,500 a month in this space. Don’t you think you'd cook a lot more, if you could do it on marble? There’s also a washer and dryer unit in the apartment, a building roof deck, a 24/7 fitness facility and (be still our beating heart) breakfast served M-F in the “luxury lounge.” Oh you fancy, huh.

Photograph: Courtesy Zumper1448 Greene Ave #1 Three-bedroom in Bushwick, $3,500/month ($1,167 per person) In a listing we can’t help but read in Donald Trump’s voice, this three-bedroom is said to have “the best finishes of any building in Bushwick.” Alright, then! From the photos, it does appear that this apartment has some nice touches. The kitchen almost looks like one you’d find in a normal real estate market, and the bathroom has a lovely brick/tile/wood design that would give your shower dancing that extra Flashdance edge. There’s also a staircase which always seems grand, though it’s hard to tell whether it is, in fact, the best staircase in Bushwick.

Not to mention, a cyclist could probably make it into Manhattan in no time with just a short hop over the bridge. Time toinvest in that CitiBike membership! For those who’d rather look at the Williamsburg Bridge than bike over it, the roof deck of this building offers some killer views of the city skyline.

Photograph: Courtesy ZumperAlexander Ave. & 139th Three-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,500/month ($833 per person) This duplex apartment offers outdoor space, handsome exposed brick and a nice, open layout. But what we really need to talk about are those adorable “his and her” bathroom sinks and closets. You and your significant other could have a morning routine straight out of a Pixar film with adorable architectural symmetry like that. A good one like Monsters Inc. not Cars 2. Not to mention, you’re just half a block from the 4, 5 and 6 trains, a thankfully short commute with anapartment located so far uptown.
