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.

759 Grand St #2

Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, $3,300/month ($1,100 per person)

Give your friends a reason to fight over you by moving into this gorgeous abode a block from the Grand L stop. The space features one of the nicer kitchens we've seen in a while (Shiny steel! Exposed brick! Pretty cabinets!), plus two full bathrooms and seemingly huge bedrooms—if the current tenant has room for their electric keyboard, think of the things you could fit!

E 105th St #12A

Two-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,150/month ($1,075 per person)

Three words: Central Park proximity. You'll be less than a block away from all the jogs, picnics, sunbathing and people-watching you can handle at this uptown flat. Sure, it looks little snug, but the kitchen boasts new appliances (including a cute teal stove) and there are hardwood floors throughout the apartment. But if we lived so ridiculously close to all that lush greenery, we wouldn't be home much.

51st Ave

Two-bedroom in Long Island City, $2,400/month ($1,200 per person)

Say hello to your new neighborhood with this LIC railroad-style apartment. Not only is it just one stop from Manhattan on the 7, it's a hop and a skip from what are possibly the city's most beautiful views at Gantry Plaza State Park, and equally close to Transmitter Brewing and Mu Ramen. Add to that a decent-size space with plenty of storage, a dishwasher and a shared outdoor space, and Queens is looking pretty good right about now.

803 9th Ave #5S

Three-bedroom in Hell's Kitchen, $3,300/month ($1,100 per person)

Given the fact that this these West Side digs are practically on top of the Theater District, Lincoln Center and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, we're pretty sure you'd be able to absorb some of the culture by osmosis (or, you know, just see a lot of performances). The floor-through place is also decked out with granite countertops, hardwood floors and a "massive" kitchen. We'll take it.

Central Ave & Broadway

Three-bedroom in Bushwick, $2,800/month ($933 per person)

Sure, exposed brick is nice and all, but you know what most NYC apartments don't have? The awesome lime-green kitchen you never knew you needed. This Bushwick spot also has giant windows in the bedrooms, new appliances (including a dishwasher) and high ceilings with what appears to be a skylight (!!!). Even if chartreuse isn't your cup of tea, that's pretty tough to pass up.
