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.

130 E 107th St

Two-bedroom in East Harlem, $2,695/month ($1,348 per person)

Usually, you don’t get to live somewhere with a spiral staircase, two private balconies and multiple bathrooms for under $1,400 unless you’re being held hostage by a beast in exchange for your father’s freedom. However, all that can be yours at this impressive East Harlem unit, not to mention your own personal bedroom sky-light. (Star light, star bright, no broker’s fee I wish tonight...) Even though this apartment is located kind of far uptown, you’ll still only be four blocks from the 103rd St 6 station. So you won't be stuck in some sort of Upper Manhattan provincial life.

34 Avenue B #2F

Three-bedroom in East Village, $3,995/month ($1,332 per person)

There are so many windows in this apartment that you might end up feeling like a fish in a bowl. An incredibly self-actualized fish that’s living its absolute best life, that is. Grab two of your best friends and get on this deal immediately if you’re looking for a place downtown. It’s incredibly rare to find an apartment this big in the area unless you’ve held on to a loft since the bad old days or are basically a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant. And look at those shelves! Is that a kitchen or a lending library? Hi, I was wondering if you had a copy of “12-Month Lease”?

Three-bedroom in Hell’s Kitchen, $3,950/month($1,317 per person)

“Hey boss, almost finished with this apartment, but I’ve got no idea where to put this washer/dryer unit,” the burly construction worker said, turning to his foreman. “I don’t know Bob, it’s been a long day. Isn’t there a little corner of the kitchen you can stick it in? I have reservations tonight.” True, this laundry room/eat-in kitchen doesn’t make complete sense, but we’re willing to look past that for this apartment’s gorgeous hardwood floors, exposed brick and stainless-steel appliances. If bricked-up fireplaces don’t make you think of Japanese horror films or Edgar Allen Poe short stories, this could be your dream home. You'll also have a super easy fix if you spill while eating.

115 S 2nd St #29

Three-bedroom in Williamsburg, $4,000/month ($1,333 per person)

The shared roof deck that you get access to with this apartment is so gigantic it should probably be considered New York’s sixth borough. Or maybe a separate country entirely. Enjoy a luxurious afternoon in the sun while you savor some freshly prepared barbeque and discuss your roof deck’s future plans to secede from the union. Who needs taxes when you’ve got a view like that? On top of that this future principality comes with bike storage, a laundry room and “dazzling hallways” (whatever that means, we don’t speak roofdeckian).

1st Ave & East 73rd St

Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,350/month ($1,175 per person)

The dishwasher in this Upper East Side stunner has a fake wood decal just like your babysitter’s Astrovan you always envied. Speaking of dreams coming true, just try not to feel like Holly Golightly with this two-bedroom’s fancy French doors, sunny windows, and plentiful closet space. True, half of the windows in this unit seem to look out over an alley, but at least you’ll have your privacy. No one’s going to be screaming at you out their window to quiet down when you’re belting “Moon River” to your cat. And did we mention the ride-or-die dishwasher?
