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.

E 24th St

Three-bedroom in Kips Bay, $3,500/month ($1,166 per person)

Maybe it's the giant windows and hardwood floors, but doesn't this look like the apartment in movies that the broker shows to the character with the fancy new job? And after gazing pensively out the window, they say "I'll take it." Fortunately for you, this place doesn't come with the exorbitant price of its fictional counterpart, but it does come with a doorman, an elevator, onsite laundry and a cool lofted space that serves as the third bedroom.

150 Adelphi St #1C

Three-bedroom in Fort Greene, $3,495/month( $1,165 per person)

All that dark wood and exposed brick sure make a tenant feel dignified, don't they? (Leather armchairs and well-stocked bookshelves not included). There's also a fireplace, which doesn't appear to be functional, but hey, it adds to that whole "welcome to my study" appeal. Aside from that, you're just a quick two blocks to Fort Greene Park, and walking distance to a host of the nabe's best eateries.

113 Freeman Street #3R

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

We were already sold on the prime location alone (oh hey, Lobster Joint, Bakeri and Alameda!), but this North Brooklyn abode is clearly an overachiever: Not only is it fully renovated with hardwood floors and a grade-A kitchen, it's got tons of natural light and two, count 'em, two bathrooms (in other words, no more A.M. shower battles).

110 W 130th St

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

Uptown life is calling with these central Harlem digs. Along with the usual suspects of renovation (hardwood floors, stainless steel kitchen), the bedrooms are described as "oversized king size," so if—like most New Yorkers—you've never had room for a giant bed, now's your chance! Last but most certainly not least, there's a private garden where you can kick back with a cold drink and congratulate yourself on moving in.

3rd Ave & East 13th St

Two-bedroom in the East Village, $2,378/month ($1,189 per person)

That's right, ladies and gentleman, an East Village apartment that doesn't cost you an arm and a leg or make you compromise your living standards. First off, the location is killer: a block from the L and smack dab in the middle of some of the city's best eats (and also IHOP, if that matters). The bedrooms might not be huge, but they do have "great closet space" and a decent amount of sunlight.
