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.

66 Washington Ave #4

Two-bedroom in Clinton Hill, $2,700/month ($1,350 per person)

This gorgeous, brick-walled loft space across from the Brooklyn Navy Yard looks like a design magazine and the totally-unrealistic set of a TV show had a lovechild. A beautiful, beautiful lovechild complete with 12-foot ceilings, two skylights (!), dark hardwood floors, industrial-chic piping, a Pinterest-worthy white-tiled kitchen and exposed brick galore. Oh, and did we mention it's furnished? (The price drops down to $2,500 for only partial furnishings.) We'll move in now, thanks.

Catherine St #14

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

Yes, reasonably priced, not-terrible downtown Manhattan apartments do exist. This one sports exposed brick, double closets in the bedrooms and a renovated kitchen that includes a dishwasher. The bedrooms look a little snug, but what the space may lack in size it makes up for in its Chinatown-adjacent location, ensuring you'll have all the cheap dumplings and dim sum you could ever want just outside your door.

562 Morgan Ave #2

Three-bedroom in Greenpoint, $2,935/month ($978 per person)

Just when you thought Greenpoint had gone the way of its pricey neighbor to the south, along comes this sunny railroad flat for under a grand apiece. The living room appears to be huge (see how it dwarfs the previous tenant's space-efficient Ikea furniture?) and the bedrooms look pretty roomy too—we call dibs on the one with the mint-green walls. And we're not mad at the proximity to McGolrick Park and the hood's myriad eateries.

Myrtle Ave #4

Four-bedroom in Fort Greene, $3,995/month ($999 per person)

First off, this charm-filled abode is a block from Fort Greene Park, so consider all your summer weekends planned (now might be a good time to invest in a picnic basket). Aside from that, you'll get loads of exposed brick, hardwood floors, a stainless steel kitchen with a dishwasher, lots of natural light and two bathrooms (because let's face it, four roommates and one bathroom basically means having to pull of a perfectly choreographed routine every morning).

97 Pulaski St #2

Three-bedroom in Bed-Stuy, $2,750/month ($917 per person)

Sunlight is your new best friend in this freshly updated walk-up on a tree-lined street—we can practically hear the birds chirping outside the windows. With those gleaming hardwood floors and good-sized living room opening up into an also good-sized kitchen (look at that counter space!), we're picturing jovial dinner parties where the wine is a-flowing. And per the listing, a backyard is available "with approval from landlord." Start working on your most charming smile now.
