813 March Avenue #3

Four-bedroom in Bedford-Stuyvesant, $3,200/month ($1,600 per person)

The living room at this gorgeous apartment may not have a window, but it does offer a skylight. You’ll just have to look up rather than out to see if night has fallen during your next Netflix binge. The listing also boasts that the space has “exposed brick in every room.” Hopefully, this means that every bedroom has an equal level of charm, and not that there’s a pile of bricks next to the toilet.

116 Eagle St #3

Two-bedroom in Greenpoint for $2,600/month ($1,300 per person)

Just think of how many “Music and the Mirror” moments you could have with the fully mirrored wall at this North Brooklyn stunner. In addition to an impressive amount of reflective surfaces, this apartment also has an entire wall of built-in shelving for all you book lovers out there. Hopefully, you’re also travel lovers because the only subway stop is one G station six blocks away.

West St

Two-bedroom in the Financial District, $2,800/month ($1,400 per person)

This is the apartment for those of you who want to live a life of luxury without paying luxury prices. The building offers a roof deck, a tenant’s lounge and billiards, and is just steps away from over 12 subway lines. Even though the all-caps listing looks like it may have been written by Patrick Bateman, you definitely would not be considered an American Psycho for signing a lease at this price in exchange for a marble bathroom, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a crystal chandelier.

Essex St #17

Two-bedroom on the Lower East Side, $2,500/month ($1,250 per person)

This two-bedroom offers a prime location with brand-new appliances and at least one bedroom with a great view of downtown Manhattan. We’re guessing the living area isn’t that big to get away with a price this low, but who cares with so many great restaurants and bars just steps away.

8th Ave & West 51st St

Two-bedroom in the Theater District, $2,695/month ($1,347 per person)

You’ll feel like a true Broadway Baby at this well-priced two bedroom in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen, excuse me, the “Theater District.” Not only does the apartment come with a rare wood-burning fireplace, polished floors and bricks for days (seriously, this brick is so exposed you’d think it was doing an ad for PETA), but you’re also just steps from Broadway, Central Park and more.

Two-bedroom in the Theater District, $2,695/month ($1,347 per person)

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.
